The Hanover Insurance Group Employee Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. has established a competitive scholarship program to recognize the importance of education and to provide support to employees’ children who plan to continue their education at a college, university, or vocational-technical school.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship 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 of The Hanover Insurance Group Employee Scholarship Program award must be:

  • A dependent* child of a full-time Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. employee who is in good standing, who qualifies for company-sponsored benefits, has a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date and remains employed by the company on the date recipients are announced to the public.
  • High school seniors or graduates (or equivalent) who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled, no later than fall of 2024, in an undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or a vocational-technical school, for the entire upcoming academic year. (Students that graduate from an accredited post-secondary institution in December of 2024, are also eligible to apply. If chosen as a recipient, student may receive the whole award.)

*Dependent children, age 26 or under, are defined as natural or legally adopted children or dependent stepchildren primarily supported by the employee.

The student is the applicant. Application information, including contact information, should be that of the student unless otherwise noted.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive one of the following award designations:

  • Seven (7) students will be selected to receive a $1,500 award
  • Up to twelve (12) additional students will be selected to receive a $1,000 award
  • Awards are one-time only and are not renewable
  • Awards are for undergraduate study only

The selection process will not be influenced or affected by the actual or perceived race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, gender, or sexual orientation of any applicant.


Notification of recipients is sent via email in late March. Nonrecipients are notified by email. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
