Louisiana Pigment, Co., L.P. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees 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 scholarships 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 Louisiana Pigment Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:
The authorized distribution for new awards will be $10,000. Awards ranging from $1,250 to $2,500 will be granted.
For those pursuing a bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university, awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is based upon the student maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent), full-time enrollment (minimum 12 hours per semester), continued parental employment at Louisiana Pigment and continuation of the program by Louisiana Pigment.
For those attending an accredited community college or vocational-technical school in Louisiana or Texas, awards are renewable for one additional year or until an Associate’s Degree/Craft Certification is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is based upon the student maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent), full time enrollment (minimum 12 hours per semester), continued parental employment at Louisiana Pigment and continuation of the program by Louisiana Pigment.
Students who withdraw from more than one-third of their total credit hours in any one school year will forfeit their scholarship. An exception may be made if absence from classes is due to illness that is certified by a physician, or other exceptional reasons as determined by Scholarship America.
