Applicants to the Philip D. Graham Memorial Scholarship Program – APAC must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time Graymont employees in Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, or the Philippines who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date. To be eligible to receive a new award or a renewal award, a recipient’s parent must be actively employed and on company payroll at the time recipients are verified by Graymont or when a renewal award is payable.
    Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children.
  • In their final year of secondary school or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited college, university, or vocational-technical school (or equivalent).

Dependent children of members of Graymont’s Strategic Leadership Team are ineligible.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 USD award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted each year. Assuming there are qualified applicants, one award will be granted to a student attending a college or university and one award will be granted to a student participating in vocational education and training at a vocational-technical school.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a vocational-technical degree or 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 Graymont.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
