Orchard Software has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college programs. 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 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the Orchard Software Scholarship Program must be:
Dependents of the Executive and/or Senior Leadership teams are not eligible.
The award amount and number of awards will be determined after the program closes.
Awards are one-time only. Past recipients may not reapply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Orchard Software. Payment is made in one installment 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 goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Orchard Software play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
