ProGrowth Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Progressive Growth Corp. has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors attending Nicollet or Sibley East High School 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 ProGrowth Scholarship Program must:

  • Be high school seniors attending Nicollet or Sibley East High School with a cumulative grade point average between 3.0 – 4.0 on a 4.0 scale, who plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school. Applicants may not be students enrolled in college through postsecondary options on a full-time basis.

Children of Progressive Growth Corp. employees are eligible to apply.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $500 award. Two awards are designated for each high school. $1000 will be awarded to each high school. Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is obtained, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Progressive Growth Corp. Payment is made in August.

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 educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, an online recommendation and a letter of reference from applicant’s current or most recent employer.

Financial need is not considered. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Progressive Growth Corp. 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.
