LP Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: March 1, 2023 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 scholarships 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 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
  • A statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances

Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.

The diversity of the scholarships awarded should match the diversity of the candidate pool (assuming all other criteria is met).

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.


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.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to twenty-two (22) scholarships will be granted each year as follows:

  • Seventeen (17) college-level awards will be granted.
  • Five (5) community college and vocational-technical awards will be granted provided there are enough qualified applications with preference given to the following fields of study:
    • Electrical
    • Electrical & Controls
    • Hydraulics & Pneumatics
    • Industrial Mobile Equipment Maintenance
    • Lean Six Sigma
    • Machinist
    • Mechanical
    • Millwright
    • Quality Control
    • Statistical Process Control

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a degree is earned, whichever occurs first. 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) in an undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or vocational-technical school in the U.S. or Canada, continued parental employment, and continuation of the program by LP.Awards are for undergraduate and CEGEP study only.

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

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload an official copy of those test scores separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
