GID Scholars Program
Application status: Closed

GID Investment Advisers, LLC has established a scholarship program to assist children 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 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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the GID Scholars Program must:

  • Dependent* children of full-time GID Investment Advisers LLC, Windsor Property Management Company, or GID Industrial Advisers LLC employees who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates planning to enroll or students already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of employees making $100K or above are not eligible to participate in this program.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to three (3) awards will be granted. An attempt will be made to select recipients to represent the various business units, providing there are qualified applicants.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by GID Investment Advisers, LLC.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in early May.

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 goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of GID Investment Advisers, LLC play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of GID Investment Advisers, LLC. Payment is made in early August.
