Griffis Residential has established a scholarship program to assist children of associates 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, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Griffis for Generations Scholarship Program must be:
Children of Vice Presidents and above are ineligible.
Awards will be granted as follows:
Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s or master’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale) and continued parental employment.
If a recipient enrolls in graduate study immediately after completing their undergraduate degree, they are eligible to renew their award.
The total maximum lifetime award amount per recipient is $40,000. If a recipient changes colleges, their award amount is subject to change.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.
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, an online recommendation and an essay about inclusion. Financial need is not considered.
In no instance does any officer or associate of Griffis Residential 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.
All applicants will be notified in late June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Griffis Residential. Payment is made in August.
