Johnson Outdoors 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, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Johnson Outdoors Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent children, up to the age of 26, of full-time Johnson Outdoors Inc. employees who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or graduates (or local equivalent), or current postsecondary undergraduates, 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.
  • Students must be enrolled in the year the award is granted.

Award Information:

  • If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $500 to $2,500 for one year of study.
  • Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
  • Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at Johnson Outdoors Inc., and continuation of the program by Johnson Outdoors Inc.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

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