Peachtree Orthopedics Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: May 9, 2021 3:00 pm Central Time

Peachtree Orthopedics has established a scholarship program to assist employees, employees’ children, and minority students of the greater Atlanta area 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.

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.

Applicants to the Peachtree Orthopedics Scholarship Program must:

  • Be full- or part- time Peachtree Orthopedics employees, or children of full- or part- time Peachtree Orthopedics employees, who have a minimum of one (1) year employment with the company as of the application deadline date. (Note: Physicians and C-Level and relatives of same are not eligible to apply.)
    OR
  • Be a minority with a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale or greater and reside in one of the following greater Atlanta, Georgia counties:
Fulton Dekalb Cobb

  • AND
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four- year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.

Based on demand, the first 50 greater Atlanta minority resident applicants will be considered.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award in the amount of $5,000. Up to five (5) awards will be granted to Peachtree employees or children of employees, and up to five (5) awards will be granted to greater Atlanta minority applicants. If there are not enough qualified applicants for either group, the excess awards will be given to the other.

Awards are not renewable, however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

Applicants will be notified in late June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, 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.
