Metal-Matic, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

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 Jerome J. Bliss Memorial Fund must:

  • Be dependent children (including adopted and stepchildren) of active Metal-Matic, Inc. employees who have a minimum of one year continuous and active service with the company at the time of application.
  • Be current high school seniors, high school graduates, or college undergraduates who are enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $600 to $1,500.  Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

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.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Metal-Matic, Inc. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.  All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.
