National Vision College Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

National Vision has established a scholarship program to assist children of National Vision associates, or doctors employed by certain affiliated independent healthcare practices who plan to continue their education in college.

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 National Vision College Scholarship Program must:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of National Vision associates, or doctors employed by certain affiliated independent healthcare practices, who are employed with the company as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll for the first time in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university in the United States for the entire upcoming academic year and pursue a bachelor degree. Applicants who begin studies at two-year colleges must plan to transfer to a four-year college.

Dependents of Officers of National Vision or its subsidiaries as well as temporary associates are not eligible.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to eight (8)* awards will be granted.

*A minimum of five (5) awards will be granted to the dependents of National Vision retail, manufacturing, and/or distribution associates.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued parental employment and continuation of the program by National Vision. The recipient’s parent must remain employed at the time of each award payment.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

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 goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

All applicants will be notified in mid March.
