George A. Hansen Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

This scholarship is intended as a memorial for George A. Hansen, an Intuit employee for 19 years. His parents, Luisa and William Hansen, have established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college in pursuit of a degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year college or university of the student’s choice.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, 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 Program must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be children or direct dependents, age 23 and under, of regular full-time Intuit employees (domestic and international) who have a minimum of one-year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date. The employee must be employed with Intuit at the time the award is announced.
  • Be high school seniors/students in their final year of upper or higher secondary school/CEGEP or graduates or be current postsecondary undergraduate or graduate students.
  • Plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate or graduate study and pursue a degree in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering at an accredited four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year. Students must confirm their major at the time of acceptance of the award.

Children of the President and Chairman are not eligible to apply.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $6,000 award.  Up to three (3) awards will be granted.

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

Applicants may receive an award from both the George A. Hansen Scholarship Program and The Scott Cook and Signe Ostby Scholarship Program in the same year.

Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.


Applicants will be notified in late March. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
