PyraMax Bank has established a scholarship program to assist employees and their children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
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, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the PyraMax Bank Scholarship Program must be:
Up to three (3) awards of $3,000 will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. The PyraMax Bank employee must be employed at the time of award distribution.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of PyraMax Bank. Payments are made in August and December.
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 is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of PyraMax Bank 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.
