Phillips 66 Company has established a scholarship program to assist members of the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Phillips 66 Community Scholarship Program must:
Up to 10 awards will be granted. Awards for recipients attending four-year college/university will be $5,500. Awards for recipients attending a community college or vocational-technical school will be $1,500.
Assuming there are qualified applicants:
For four-year awards: Preference will be given to students attending four-year college/university interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education.
For two-year awards: Preference will be given to students attending two-year community colleges or vocational-technical schools interested in STEM (Science, technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education or industry-related craft or trade.
Recipients who attend a four-year college/university and are interested in internships will be guaranteed an interview for a summer internship with Phillips 66 if they have a relevant field of study and meet the minimum GPA requirements for the Phillips 66 internship program.
Recipients who attend a community college or vocational-technical school and are interested in internships will be guaranteed an interview for craft/trade internship or full-time position with Phillips 66 following their school completion if they studied a relevant craft/trade and meet the minimum GPA requirements for the Phillips 66 internship program or new hire position.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s or vocational/trade degree or certificate 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 Phillips 66 Company. Students, who drop below full-time, do not maintain a cumulative 2.5 GPA or who fail or withdraw from more than one-third of their total credit hours in any one school year will forfeit their scholarship. Students may petition for continuation of the award upon enrolling in the summer session to meet the above requirements. An exception may be made if absence from classes is on account of illness, certified to by a physician, or other exceptional reasons determined to have been the cause of such withdrawal.
Students may defer their award if volunteering for or called into active military service, or for a church mission. The award will be reactivated upon petition by the recipient. Students who willingly participate in illegal activities that come to the attention of Company or Contractor will immediately forfeit their scholarship.
Awards are for undergraduate study only and can be used for tuition, books and required supplies.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
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 Phillips 66 Company play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in May.
