J. E. Reilly Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Isuzu North America Corporation (INAC) has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees 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 scholarships 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 J. E. Reilly Scholarship Program must:

  • Be children or legal dependents age 24 and under of full-time Isuzu North America Corporation (INAC), Isuzu Motors America, LLC (ISZA), Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Inc. (ICTA), Isuzu Commercial Truck of Canada (ICTC), Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (ITCA), and Isuzu Logistics North America, Inc. (ILNA) employees who have a minimum of one year employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
  • Be students who are enrolled or who are planning to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational technical school.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $4,000. The number of scholarships awarded will be based on SAI selection procedures and the funds available from interest earned on funds deposited with SAI. Only one new award may be granted each year per family (unless there are not enough qualified candidates).

Financial need will be considered in determining the size of the award; however, qualified students demonstrating no financial need are eligible for honorariums at the minimum level.

Awards are renewable up to three years on the basis of satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, satisfactory general school conduct, and continued parental employment.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


All applicants will be notified in late May.
