Greif, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist colleagues’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the Greif, Inc. Scholarship Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $3,000 to $7,000. Financial need, as determined by Scholarship America, will be considered when determining the size of the award. Qualified students showing no financial need will be considered for a $3,000 award. If eligible, students receiving a $3,000 award may reapply to the program on a yearly basis.
Recipients that demonstrate financial need will receive a renewable award. These 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 at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school. The Greif, Inc. employee parent must continue to be employed by Greif, Inc.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Award amounts are subject to change at any time.
Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Greif, Inc. Payments to recipients attending university in the U.S. and Canada are made in one installment in early August. Recipients attending university outside of the U.S. or Canada will be sent the funds by wire transfer in September.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need, as determined by Scholarship America, will be considered to determine the amount of each award, ranging from $3,000 to $7,000. Qualified students showing no financial need will be considered for a $3,000 award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Greif, Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
