Main Street Capital Corporation has established a scholarship program for Main Street Capital Corporation and a select group of Main Street Capital Corporation’s portfolio companies, to assist employees’ children 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. Eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

The authorized distribution for new awards will be up to $125,000 as follows:
All awards are renewed based on satisfactory academic performance.
A two-year recipient may be considered for an additional two-year award if they transfer to a four-year college; however, they would need to reapply and renewal does not automatically occur.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in late June.
