Lenovo has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university. Scholarships are offered for full-time undergraduate study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, a national nonprofit educational support and student aid service organization that seeks to involve and assist the private sector in expanding educational opportunities and encouraging educational achievement. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, sex, age, disability, veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.
