Johns Manville Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Johns Manville Fund 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 Johns Manville Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent children of full-time Johns Manville Corporation employees in the United States or Canada, who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *A dependent child is one who would qualify for membership in a company-sponsored health plan.
  • High school seniors who plan to enroll 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. Applicants who plan to attend government-subsidized military academies or who receive “full ride” scholarships are not eligible for the Johns Manville Scholarship.

Children of retired employees are not eligible.

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 educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • 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 Johns Manville Fund 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.

If selected, students may request a deferral of one year, with approval from the sponsor.


All applicants will be notified in March.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Johns Manville Fund. Payment is made in early August.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award.

Up to 11 new awards will be granted to no more than 25% of the applicants for the first year of postsecondary study.

Scholarships must be applied to tuition and lab fees associated with course work. Scholarships cannot be used for books, general supplies/equipment, or room and board.

Awards are renewable one-time on the basis of satisfactory academic performance.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

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 (not required) 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.
