Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to eight (8) awards will be granted.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance, full-time course of study and full-time enrollment in an eligible major.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Recipients may be offered a paid internship with Randstad following their freshman, sophomore or junior year of college. (Note: the internship is not required to receive a scholarship, and scholarship recipients are not guaranteed an internship)

Notification

All applicants will be notified in April.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Randstad. Payment is made in early 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
  • A short-answer essay
  • An online recommendation

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.

Assuming there are qualified applicants, preference will be given to underserved students in the field of STEM including women; those individuals with a disability (as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act); those who self-identify as Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino; or American Indian or Alaska Native; and first-generation college students.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Randstad Technologies, Inc. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. 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.
