SAIC offers 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, disability, or national origin.
Applying for the scholarship grants SAIC permission to announce all winners internally and will include employee and student names as well as the student’s chosen school/college and the employee’s work location.
Applicants to the SAIC Scholarship Program for Employees’ Children must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to twenty (20) awards will be granted.
Awards are one time only and past recipients may not reapply. Non-recipients may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Please note that due to IRS regulations, the scholarship award amount will be reported as income on the SAIC employee’s W-2 (Wage and Tax Statement) and is subject to tax withholding by SAIC. Award recipients will not be taxed.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, 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 SAIC play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in mid-June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of SAIC. Payment is made in one installment in August. The checks are made out to the institution on behalf of the student and are mailed to the student address on file.
