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:
75 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
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 goals and aspirations, 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.
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.
