Pernod Ricard USA Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: May 3, 2021 3:00 pm CT

Pernod Ricard USA has established a scholarship program to assist children of Pernod Ricard USA, Pernod Ricard Bottling and Pernod Ricard Winemakers employees who plan to continue their education in college.

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, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Pernod Ricard USA Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time Pernod Ricard USA, Pernod Ricard Bottling or Pernod Ricard Winemakers employees who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment as of the application deadline and are still employed at the time the award check is mailed.
    *Dependent children are defined as biological, stepchildren or legally adopted children or children of registered domestic partners living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to 5 awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable; however, students that have not received an award may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Students may receive an award one time only.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, 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. Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Pernod Ricard USA 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.


All applicants will be notified in June.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Pernod Ricard USA. Payment is made in August.
