The Howard Hughes Corporation has formed a scholarship program to support residents of eligible regional areas who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.The 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.
Applicants to the Howard Hughes Corporation Community Scholarship Program must:
Up to 3 renewable awards of $5,000 each will be granted.
Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance. Students do not need to continue to reside in an eligible regional area for renewal of their award.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in July.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The Howard Hughes Corporation. Payment is made in August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, 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. All recipients must demonstrate financial need.
Provided qualified applications are received, at least one recipient will be selected that is currently living with, or have lived with, a foster care family and one recipient will be selected that self-identifies as American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of The Howard Hughes 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.
