The Medtronic Scholarship Program was established in 1982 as a memorial to recognize the leadership and service Palmer J. Hermundslie gave to Medtronic as a co-founder of the company. Medtronic offers this program to aid and encourage employees’ children in continuing their education.
Scholarships are offered to children of eligible U.S. and Puerto Rico-based Medtronic employees and its subsidiaries. The program is competitive and recipients are awarded scholarships for full-time study at any accredited postsecondary institution of the student’s choice.
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, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
