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 Pega Scholars Program must:
Pegasystems employees and their children are not eligible.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record*, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, a statement of goals and aspirations, and unusual personal or family circumstances.
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 Pegasystems play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
*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.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award. Up to ten (10) awards will be granted.
Awards will be issued in U.S. dollars (USD).
Provided there are qualified applicants, recipients will be selected in proportion to the number of applicants per country.
Awards are one-time only.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in November.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Pegasystems. Payment is made in December.
