Ingredion Incorporated has established a scholarship program to assist a limited number of employees’ children who plan to continue education in college, university or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The Board of Directors of the Ingredion Educational Foundation has appointed a Selection Committee, and each year the Board will determine the aggregate amount to be distributed for new and renewal scholarship grants during the next academic year. It is contemplated that this aggregate amount will satisfy or exceed the requirements of the Internal Revenue Code concerning the distribution of income.
The Selection Committee shall be comprised of individuals who are independent of Ingredion Incorporated and its subsidiaries and the Ingredion Educational Foundation. No member of the Selection Committee shall be a director, officer, employee, or former employee, or a close relative of a director, officer, employee, or former employee of Ingredion Incorporated and its subsidiaries or the Ingredion Educational Foundation.
The Ingredion Educational Foundation has selected Scholarship America® to administer and serve as the Selection Committee for the Foundation. Scholarship America is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals.

Applicants to the Ingredion Educational Foundation Scholarship Program must be:
*Dependent children are defined as natural or legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
International applicants must be ready to start university by Fall 2020. (Southern Hemisphere applicants must be ready to start university by spring 2021.)
Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award. Recipients who demonstrate no need, as determined by Scholarship America, may be eligible to receive a one-time honorarium.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Ingredion Incorporated or the Ingredion Educational Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in late 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 the Ingredion Educational Foundation. Payments are made in one installment. For recipients attending school within the U.S. and Canada, the individual scholarship checks are mailed in early August and are made payable to the college/university, but mailed to the recipient’s home address. For recipients attending university outside of the U.S. and Canada, the funds will be sent via wire transfer in early September.
Due to differences in educational systems, applicants from countries other than the U.S. and Canada must provide the following materials:
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. Central Time on March 19, 2020.
