Andrew D Peykoff, Sr. Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Niagara Bottling, LLC has established The Andrew D. Peykoff, Sr. Scholarship Program 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 scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants to theĀ Andrew D Peykoff, Sr. Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 25 and under, of at least one full time employee of Niagara Bottling, LLC provided that such employee has a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates or current postsecondary undergraduate level students.
  • Plan to enroll in a full time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two year or four year college, university or vocational-technical school. (Students graduating mid-year may apply; however, the award will be one-half of the full year award)

*Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

*Children of Vice Presidents and Executive Vice Presidents are ineligible to apply.


$5,000 annual award or $20,000 maximum award for those who demonstrate financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America.

$2,500 annual award or $10,000 maximum award for those who do not demonstrate financial need, but are still deserving of an award.

Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent on continued enrollment in full-time undergraduate study, satisfactory academic performance and continuation of the program by Niagara Bottling, LLC.

If the recipient’s schooling extends beyond four years, the student may apply to the program again as a new applicant provided they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
