Henkel Corporation Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: April 15, 2021 3:00 pm CT

Henkel Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable 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 scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Henkel Corporation Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children of employees of Henkel Corporation and affiliated companies in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico who work a minimum of twenty (20) hours per week and have a minimum one (1) year employment with the company by September 1 of the year the award is first issued.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be current high school seniors or college undergraduates who are enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.
  • Have a minimum 2.5 grade point average (4.0 scale).
  • Not be temporary, seasonal, co-op or on temporary assignment in the U.S., Canada, or Puerto Rico.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Henkel Corporation 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.

Obligations

Recipients have no obligation to Henkel Corporation. They are, however, required to notify Scholarship America of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information and to send a complete transcript when requested.

Revisions

Henkel Corporation reserves the right to review the conditions and procedures of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time, including termination of the program.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award.

Awards are renewable up to three (3) years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance, full-time enrollment, and continued active parental employment. (“Active” means a person on full-time work status and does not include employees who resign, are terminated, or who are drawing severance.)

Students whose parents retire after the initial award is granted are eligible for renewal.

Awards are for tuition and academic fees only during undergraduate study.

Notification

All applicants will be notified by email by June 2021.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Henkel Corporation. Payment is made in August.
