  • Selections are made by Scholarship America using a number of criteria including the level of need.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to 10 awards will be granted.

Awards may be renewed for up to one additional year or until an associate’s degree or vocational-technical degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance, full-time or part-time enrollment, and continued employment/parental employment.
