Roquette Community Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Roquette has established a scholarship program to assist students who plan to continue their education in college.

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, gender, disability, or national origin.

Eligibility
Applicants to the Roquette Community Scholarship Program must meet all the following criteria:

  • Be current high school seniors attending one of the following schools:
    • Central Lee High School (Donnellson, IA)
    • Keokuk High School (Keokuk, IA)
    • Geneva High School (Geneva, IL)
    • Hamilton High School (Hamilton, IL)
    • Waukegan High School (Waukegan, IL)

  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent).
  • Plan to pursue a degree in one of the following areas of study:
    • Nutrition and/or health

    • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics)

Award

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Up to six (6) 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 in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by Roquette.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Recipients will also have priority consideration for a future internship with Roquette, if interested.

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 outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.

Provided qualified applications are received, an attempt will be made to grant one (1) award at each participating school.

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

Notification
All applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Roquette. Payment is made in August to the school for the student’s account.
