HNI Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist children of members 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 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, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the HNI Corporation Scholarship Program must be:
*Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the member’s household or primarily supported by the member.
Awards will range from $500-$2,500. Financial need will be considered in determining the amount of the award. Potential recipients who demonstrate no need will be eligible to receive a one-time honorarium at the minimum amount. Other awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree or certificate is obtained, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in early May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Non-recipients will be notified, as well.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of HNI Corporation. Payments are made in early August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of consideration of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of careers and educational goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances and an outside recommendation.
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, will be considered. Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award, ranging from $500 to $2,500.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of HNI Corporation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
