HighPoint Cares Foundation, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist dependent children of HighPoint employees who plan to continue their education in college, vocational or technical school programs. Scholarships are offered for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice for the upcoming school year.
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.

Undergraduate students who are in their fourth year of study are not eligible to apply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $5,000. Up to three (3) awards will be granted. The program will be administered in full compliance with IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47.
Awards are one time only. Past recipients may not reapply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
