PyraMax Bank Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

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:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time and part-time** PyraMax Bank employees who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.

OR

  • Full-time and part-time** employees who have a minimum of one-year employment with the company and are in good standing with the company as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
    **Part-time is defined as working a minimum of 16 hours per week.

AND

  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

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.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of PyraMax Bank. Payments are made in August and December.

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, 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.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

    • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.
