LKQ Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees of LKQ Corporation or its subsidiaries outside of North America who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs (or equivalent).
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the U.S.’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 for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the LKQ Joseph M. Holsten Scholarship Program must:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 (USD) award. Up to 200 awards will be granted. The award payments will be issued in U.S. dollars (USD).
Provided there are qualified applicants, recipients will be selected in proportion to the number of applicants per country.
The employee parent must remain employed by LKQ on the date the scholarship is awarded.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. The maximum number of years a recipient may receive an award is four (4) years.
Awards are for undergraduate study only. The scholarship may not be used for graduate school.
All applicants will be notified in July.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of LKQ. Payment is made in August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives and unusual personal or family circumstances (if applicable).
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of LKQ play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
