Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation Scholarship Honor for Achievement and Recognition Program (SHARP)
Application status: Closed

The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their 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, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation Scholarship Honor for Achievement and Recognition Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of full-time associates of The Reynolds and Reynolds Company (U.S. and Canada) who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled 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

The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation provides two types of scholarships:

  • $1,500 non-renewable awards (non-renewed recipients may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements), and
  • $2,500 renewable awards that recipients may receive for up to three additional years based on satisfactory academic performance and full-time course of study.

Scholarship recipients who are attending United States Military Academies will receive a one-time $1,500 honorarium.

Awards are for undergraduate study only. Students cannot receive an award more than four years.

Notification

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.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation Scholarship Honor for Achievement and Recognition scholarship payments on behalf of The Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation. Payments are made in one installment 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 goals and aspirations, 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 The Reynolds and Reynolds Company play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
