The Patterson Foundation 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 Patterson Foundation Scholarship Program must be:
Also eligible are children of U.S. and International Patterson Companies, Inc. deceased employees who were employed and met the stated employee requirements as of the current program year’s deadline or up to 12 calendar months prior.
Children of Corporate Officers of Patterson Companies, Inc. or Foundation Board Members of Patterson Foundation or any of its subsidiaries are not eligible to apply to this program.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Patterson Companies, Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $4,750 award in U.S. dollars. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a baccalaureate degree, or equivalent, is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by the Patterson Foundation.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in mid-May.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Patterson Foundation. Payment is made in early August.
