The Roosevelt Paper Company has established a scholarship program to assist children or dependents of employees of Sponsor’s current or prospective clients (as of the application deadline) who plan to continue their education in college or vocational-technical school programs.

This 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Eligibility
Applicants to the Roosevelt Paper Scholarship Program must:

  • Be children or dependents of plant personnel employees of Sponsor’s current or prospective clients as of the application deadline date.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, or current college undergraduates.
  • 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.

Award
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to 10 awards will be granted.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of career and educational goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of the Roosevelt Paper Company play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Notification
Applicants will be notified in mid-June.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Roosevelt Paper Company. Payment is made in early August.
