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 those employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This 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 Main Street Capital Corporation Scholarship must:
Special consideration will be given to students who meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition of having a disability: “A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment.” Applicants with disabilities that meet the ADA definition will be required to provide medical documentation.
Special consideration will also be given to students who are first-generation college students (i.e. neither parent continued their education beyond high school).
The authorized distribution for new awards will be up to $75,000 as follows:
Awards are renewable for a second year in the case of two-year programs, and up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned for four-year programs, whichever occurs first, on the basis of 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.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Main Street Capital Corporation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
