nVent has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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 nVent Scholarship Fund must be:
Children of nVent officers and nVent subsidiary presidents are ineligible to apply. Students receiving a scholarship award from one of nVent’s individual subsidiaries in any given year are ineligible.
nVent offers two types of scholarship awards:
Recipients will represent international locations, if qualified applications are received.
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 with nVent, and continuation of the program by nVent. Students receiving need-based awards must continue to show need at time of renewal, as determined by Scholarship America, or the awards will be adjusted to a $2,000 merit award.
If the employment status changes once an award is granted, the following will apply:
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
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 appraisal. Financial need is considered for the need-based awards only.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of nVent play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in March. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of nVent. Payments are made in equal installments in mid July and early December.
