UBS Global Wealth Management has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college.
The 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 Joseph J. Grano, Jr. Scholarship Program must be:
*Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee and claimed as dependents of the employee for tax purposes.
**The employee must be employed by UBS Global Wealth Management Entity as of the application deadline date and remain employed by UBS Global Wealth Management Entity as of the program employment verification date.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of UBS Global Wealth Management. Payments are made in one installment in U.S. dollars in mid-August.
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.
Preference is given to students who demonstrate financial need.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of UBS Global Wealth Management in the U.S. or Canada play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 5, 2021 3:00 pm CT.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
