Fortive Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: April 29, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time

Fortive Corporation offers a scholarship program to assist children/dependents of employees at Fortive and its operating companies with their education at a two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor i.e., Fortive Corporation, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants to the Fortive Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children of an active, full time employee of the Fortive corporation or its operating companies, who are in good standing as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural or legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, in the final year of secondary school, or current postsecondary undergraduates who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university, community college or vocational/technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).

Note: Previous recipients of the Fortive Scholarship will be contacted about renewing the scholarship and should not reapply.

Award Information:

  • If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $5,000.
  • Each applicant is only eligible for one award.
  • Up to twenty (20) awards will be granted.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Students enrolled in a vocational program would be eligible to renew if they planned to continue enrollment to pursue an associates or bachelor’s degree. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (i.e. maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or the equivalent) in a full-time course of study, the employee parent remaining actively employed in good standing, and continuation of the program by Fortive.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


All applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Fortive. Payments are made in one installment in August.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Honors
  • Work experience
  • Statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Fortive play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Recipients will receive a request for a video message (self-recorded) if they are awarded the scholarship.

As part of your application, you must upload the following document:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 3, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time.

Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
