Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands who plan to continue their education in college, vocational, or CEGEP (or equivalent) 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, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Osmose Pursuit of Excellence Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. employees in the United States, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Be high school seniors/students in their final year of upper or higher secondary, graduates or current college or university undergraduates.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school, or CEGEP (or equivalent) for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of the executive leadership team are ineligible to apply.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances

Academic evaluation will include a review of the grade/mark average based on the grading system used in the applicant’s country and a review of the results of academic examinations.

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. 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.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted.

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 and continued employment of the student’s parent at Osmose Utilities Services, Inc.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

All applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
