Odyssey Reinsurance Company 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, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Odyssey Group Scholars Program must:
Children of Senior Vice Presidents and above are ineligible to apply. Limited to one active award per employee family.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $15,000 award. Up to 3 awards will be granted. Awards are renewable up to three consecutive years or until completion of the enrolled degree/vocational program, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent in a full-time course of study) and continued parental employment.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Odyssey Reinsurance Company. Payment is made in August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational goals and objectives and an online recommendation.
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, will be considered. Recipients will be selected from a pool of qualified applicants with consideration given to those who demonstrate the greatest need. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of the Odyssey Reinsurance Company 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.
