The McKesson Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America, the largest U.S. 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, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the McKesson Foundation Scholarship Program must be:
Children of international McKesson employees (other than Canadian employees) are not eligible to participate in this program.
Recipients of McKesson National Merit Scholarships are not eligible to participate in the program.
Recipients who attend a United States Military Academy will receive a one-time, nonrenewable award.
Applicants will be notified of their status in early July. 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 the McKesson Foundation. Payments are made in equal installments in mid-August and mid-December.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of the McKesson Foundation or McKesson Corporation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. CT on May 18, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
