Link-Belt Cranes has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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.
Applicants to the Link-Belt Cranes Scholarship Program must:
Children of officers of the company are not eligible to participate in the program.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $750 or $1,500. To receive a $1,500 award, recipients must demonstrate financial need of $1,500 or greater; recipients who do not demonstrate this need will receive a $750 award.
Awards may be renewed for up to one additional year or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (cumulative 2.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale) and continued parental employment.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, any unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need is considered when determining the amount of the award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Link-Belt Crane play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients and all applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Previous recipients may reapply to the program every other year provided they meet eligibility requirements.
All applicants will be notified in March.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Link-Belt Crane. Payments are made in August and December.
