Polaris Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to 40 awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (i.e. freshman maintaining a 2.75 GPA on a 4.0 scale; a 3.00 GPA is required after the freshman year) in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at Polaris Inc., and continuation of the program by Polaris Inc.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Your application must be submitted on or before 3:00 p.m. Central Time on April 1, 2020.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. 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 Polaris Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Polaris Inc. Payments are made in one installment on August 15.
