IRI has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year institution of the student’s choice.
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, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Allen F. Hill Memorial Scholarship Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted each year. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years. Students may transition to graduate study during the term of the award. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued parental employment and continuation of the program by IRI.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.
Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of IRI play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified by late July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes Allen F. Hill Memorial scholarship payments on behalf of IRI. Payments are made in equal installments in mid August and mid December. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.
