LP Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: March 15, 2021 3:00 pm CT

LP has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

Applicants to the LP Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of full-time U.S. or Canadian employees of LP or one of its subsidiaries who have a minimum of one year continuous employment with the company as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as those who qualify for participation in the company’s group insurance.
  • High school seniors or graduates or current postsecondary undergraduates who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire academic year.

Canadian students must be in their graduating year of secondary school, CEGEP or equivalent, or graduates or current postsecondary undergraduates.

Children of LP’s Board of Directors and executive officers (LP’s Sr. Management) are not eligible to apply.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of LP play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to twenty-one (21) scholarships will be granted each year as follows:

  • Sixteen (16) college-level awards will be granted in proportion to the number of applications received from each division. Division is determined by where the employee is based.

Renewal is contingent upon the recipient maintaining a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, full-time enrollment (generally 24 credits per academic year or the equivalent), continued parental employment, and continuation of the program by LP.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

Applicants will be notified by late April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of LP. Payments are issued in U.S. currency and processed in one installment in early August. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.

Interested students must complete the application in English. As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

Due to differences in educational systems, current secondary school students must include clear photocopies of the following materials:

  • Academic record (transcript of grades) for all secondary education course work completed during the past three years
  • Results of academic examinations

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 18, 2021 3:00 pm CT.
