L.B. Foster Company 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. 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 L.B. Foster Company College Scholarship Program in Memory of Daniel M. Ruzich must be:
Children of officers are ineligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted each year as follows: one award for children of hourly employees, and one award for children of salaried employees.
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 maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in a full-time course of study, not being over the age of 25 as of September 1 of award year, continued employment of the student’s parent at L.B. Foster Company and continuation of the program by L.B. Foster Company.
*Recipients may defer their scholarship for up to a total of two years.
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, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.

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.
