The John Jamison Iron Mountain Education Fund was established and funded by Iron Mountain shareholders and directors to encourage and recognize academic excellence,
and to assist employees in meeting the costs of their children’s pursuit of academic advancement or vocational education.

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 John Jamison Iron Mountain Education Fund must meet the following requirements:

  • Dependent* children, up to age 24, of full‐time Iron Mountain employees globally at the Director level and below who have been employed with the company for a minimum of twelve (12) consecutive months as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural or legally adopted children or dependent stepchildren primarily supported by the employee (the employee provides more than 1/2 of the child’s total support during the calendar year.)
  • Children of deceased employees are also eligible if the full‐time employee was classified as Director level or below at the time of death.
  • High school/upper secondary school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll, or students who are already enrolled, in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.


50 scholarship awards of $2,000 (USD) will be awarded to selected applicants.

Awards are nonrenewable. Receiving an award does not disqualify the recipient from applying in future years provided the applicant continues to meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study at an accredited two‐year or four‐year college, university, or vocational‐technical school for the entire upcoming academic year. Graduate programs are not eligible

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record and financial need. Applicants must also have demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, and description of how life experiences have shaped who they are today.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Iron Mountain play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.


Applicants will be notified in late June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments, issued in U.S. currency, on behalf of Iron Mountain. Payments are made in early August or upon verification of enrollment. Scholarship America mails scholarship checks (payable to the educational institution) to student recipients. For students outside the United States, Scholarship America may send funds via wire transfer.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.
  • Upper secondary school diploma or certificate, if earned (international applicants only).

Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
