We have established the Pepper Employees’ Children Scholarship Fund because we recognize the importance of education beyond the secondary level and we understand the increasing cost of further education. Our scholarship fund provides for new scholarships and honorariums for undergraduate full-time or part-time study at an institution of the student’s choice.
This 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Children of Pepper owners are not eligible.
Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of J.W. Pepper & Son, Inc. Payments are made in early August.
Financial need will be considered in determining the amount of the award. Potential full-time or part-time student recipients who demonstrate no need will be eligible to receive a one-time honorarium of $1,000. The maximum amount for a two- year or vocational-technical school recipient is $2,000.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does J.W. Pepper & Son, Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. Central Time on March 24, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
