HAL USA Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Hitachi America, Ltd. has established a scholarship program to assist children of regular full time and regular part time employees who plan to continue their education in college.

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. 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 HAL USA Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of employees who have a minimum of one-year of employment with the company as of the application deadline.
    *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, children who have graduated from high school within the past 24 months (due to the pandemic), or students already enrolled or who plan to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of past academic performance and future potential, 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 will be considered in determining the amount of the award; however, qualified students demonstrating no financial need are eligible for an honorarium at the minimum level.

Each family, regardless of the number of dependents, will be limited to one scholarship per year.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Hitachi America, Ltd. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in April.
