Nike has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees 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 scholarship, tuition assistance, 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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Nike Scholarship Fund must be:
Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards may be used for tuition and fees and are for undergraduate study only.
Nike Scholarship Awards
Awards ranging from $500.00 to $5,000.00 will be granted.
Financial need will be considered in determining the size of the award. Potential recipients who demonstrate no need will be eligible to receive an honorarium at the minimum amount.
Frank Rudy Scholarship Awards
Up to five awards of $5,000.00 each will be named for and honor Frank Rudy, the inventor of Nike Air.
Financial need will not be considered.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
One application will be used to select recipients of the Nike Scholarship Awards and the Frank Rudy Scholarship Awards. The top five applicants majoring in science or engineering at a four-year United States college or university will receive the Frank Rudy Scholarship Award. Recipients will not be eligible for a Nike Scholarship Award in the same year.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Nike play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Nike. Payment is made in August.
