HII has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the HII Post-Secondary Education Scholarship Program must be:
Children of Elected or Appointed officers of HII are ineligible to apply. Employees of HII who are also children of HII employees are generally not eligible unless they are temporarily employed in summer or internship positions which are not eligible for HII tuition assistance.
Up to thirty (30) awards of $3,000 each will be granted to four-year college or university students.
Up to twenty (20) awards of $1,500 each will be granted to two-year or vocational-technical students.
$3,000 awards to four-year colleges or universities may be renewed up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. $1,500 awards to two-year or vocational-technical schools may be renewed for up to one additional year or until an associate’s degree or certificate is earned, whichever occurs first. Two-year or vocational-technical recipients who transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree may renew the award but are limited to a combined total of four years.
Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at HII (unless employment of the parent ceased as a result of their death, disability, retirement or layoff) and continuation of the program by HII.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Financial need as calculated by Scholarship America must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Academic evaluation of international applicants will include a review of the grade/mark average based on the grading system used in the applicant’s country and a review of the results of academic examinations. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of HII play a part in the selection. Selection is not guaranteed. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of HII. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
