Lockheed Martin has established a scholarship program to provide opportunities to students studying engineering or computer science that demonstrate need and come from underrepresented or underserved communities. In 2020, up to 200 renewable scholarships of $10,000 each are offered for full-time study at an institution of the student’s choice.
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.
Provided there are qualified applicants, an effort will be made to give preference to applicants who:
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Recipients attending a United States Military Academy will receive a one-time, non-renewable award.
Applicants will be notified in late April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Lockheed Martin. Payments are made in equal installments in August and December.
Additional consideration will be given to first-generation college students and to applicants who self-identify as members of groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM careers:
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Lockheed Martin play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
– Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Note: If the applicant’s family does not file taxes, please attach a document explaining the circumstances in detail.
Also, as part of your application, one online recommendation must be completed on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. CT on March 17, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
