nVent Scholarship Fund
Application status: Closed

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 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 the nVent Scholarship Fund must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 22 and under, of full-time worldwide employees of nVent or one of its subsidiaries who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee and/or who qualify for benefits by the company.
  • High school seniors/students in their final year of upper-secondary school or graduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university CEGEP school, or vocational-technical/trade school/polytechnic institution (or equivalent) for the entire upcoming academic year.”

Children of nVent officers, nVent segment presidents and employees with the title of vice president or above are ineligible to apply. Students receiving a scholarship award from one of nVent’s individual subsidiaries in any given year are ineligible.

Award Amounts

nVent offers two types of scholarship awards:

  • Fund 1:  Up to  fifteen (15) renewable awards of $2,000 each, regardless of financial need.
  • Fund 2:  Up to ten (10) need-based renewable awards of $5,000 each. Students must demonstrate need as determined by Scholarship America.

In addition, an effort will be made to:

  • Select recipients from various geographic locations.
  • Select at least 5 recipients who plan to attend a two-year college or vocational-technical/trade school/polytechnic institution (or equivalent.)

If there are not enough qualified applicants in any particular pool, those awards may be granted to other qualified applicants in other pools.

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.

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
  • Statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances, and home responsibilities.
  • 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.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of nVent. Payments are made in August.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.
