GPC Scholarship Fund has established a scholarship program to assist children of U.S. employees of Genuine Parts Company, Motion Industries, and The U.S. Automotive Group who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This 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 GPC Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:
Students enrolling at historically Black College or universities (HBCU) are strongly encouraged to apply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to ten (10) awards will be granted.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational goals and objectives, and any unusual personal or family circumstances.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Genuine Parts Company, Motion Industries, or The U.S Automotive Group 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.
All applicants will be notified of final decisions in July.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The GPC Scholarship Fund. Payment will be made in early August.
