Sargent & Lundy Centennial Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

On January 2, 1991, Sargent & Lundy, established a Centennial Scholarship Program (CSP). This program was created to recognize the accomplishments of our employees’ children, encouraging them to further their education and assisting them in financing their education.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship 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.

Applicants to the Sargent & Lundy Centennial Scholarship Program must be:

  • Children* age 23 and under, of full-time Sargent & Lundy employees who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline.
    *The word children is defined as natural, adopted, or stepchildren or wards of the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.
  • Must have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 cumulative grade point average scale (C+ or 84% on the U.S. percentage scale; 69% on the Canadian percentage scale.)

Children of Members are not eligible to apply.

Award Amounts

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $3,000 award. Up to thirty (30) awards will be granted for the upcoming academic year. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only. Scholarships may be used for any course of study; however, preference will be given to students enrolled in engineering or science programs.

All information received is considered confidential and is reviewed only by Scholarship America.

Selection of Recipients

  • Academic record
  • 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

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


Applicants will be notified in early 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 scholarship payments on behalf of Sargent & Lundy. Payment is made in one installment in early August. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student to present.


Recipients have no obligation to Sargent & Lundy. They are, however, required to notify Scholarship America of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information, and to send a complete official transcript when requested.


Sargent & Lundy reserves the right to review the conditions and procedures of this scholarship program and to make changes at any time including termination of the program.
