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.

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 will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.
Selection of finalists is made by Scholarship America. PlaceWorks will select recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in November.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of PlaceWorks. Payment is made in December.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to two (2) awards will be granted.
