Nixon Peabody LLP, through The Boston Foundation, Inc., has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their 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.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistant 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.
Postmark Deadline: February 3, 2020
Applicants to the scholarship program must be:
Children of Nixon Peabody LLP attorneys are not eligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to three (3) awards will be granted as long as there are a sufficient number of qualified applicants.
Awards are renewable for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in full-time study and continuation of the program by The Boston Foundation, Inc. for Nixon Peabody LLP.
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, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside adult appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer, partner, or employee of The Boston Foundation or Nixon Peabody LLP play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in mid March. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students not receiving an award may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the sponsor. Payments are made in one installment on August 1. A check will be mailed to each recipient’s home address and made payable to the school for the student. A renewal form will be mailed to each recipient in December.
Recipients have no obligation to The Boston Foundation, Inc. or Nixon Peabody LLP. They are, however, required to notify Scholarship America of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information and to send a complete transcript when requested.
The sponsor reserves the right to review the conditions and procedures of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time including termination of the program.
Interested students must complete the application and mail it along with a current, complete transcript of grades to Scholarship America postmarked no later than February 3. Grade reports are not acceptable. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grade and credit hours earned for each course, and term in which each course was taken.
Applicants will receive acknowledgment of receipt of their application. If an acknowledgment email is not received within three weeks, applicants may call Scholarship America to verify that the application has been received.
Applicants are responsible for gathering and submitting all necessary information. Applications are evaluated on the information supplied; therefore, answer all questions as completely as possible.
