Alfred J. Verrecchia Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Hasbro is proud to sponsor the Alfred J. Verrecchia scholarship program to recognize the outstanding academic achievements of its employees’ children and to assist them in financing their education. Renewable Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

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 Alfred J. Verrecchia Scholarship Program must:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of U.S. Hasbro employees who work a minimum of 30 hours per week and have one year of service with the company as of August 1.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the US for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to ten (10) awards will be granted. 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, continued employment of the student’s parent at Hasbro, and continuation of the program by Hasbro.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in late-June.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Hasbro. Payments are made in August and December.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Hasbro 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.
