Gemline Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Gemline has established a scholarship program to assist dependent children and dependent grandchildren of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

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

Applicants to the Gemline Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children or dependent* grandchildren of full-time Gemline employees who have a minimum of one year employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children and grandchildren are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children or grandchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be current high school seniors or high school graduates (not currently enrolled in college) or current college undergraduates.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study* at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical/trade** school for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Parochial studies are not eligible
**Certification programs are not eligible

Children of executive level employees are ineligible.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Up to 11 awards will be granted and distributed as follows: two (2) awards at $5,000 each; four (4) awards at $2,500 each; five (5) awards at $1,000 each;

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


All applicants will be notified in April.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Gemline. Payment is made in early August.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

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

Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.

Provided enough qualified applications are received, preference will be given to students from underserved communities and first generation college students.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Gemline play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

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

  • 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 February 13, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time.

Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
