Children of Lenovo Employees Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

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.
