Sasol Dependent Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: March 24, 2020 3:00 pm CT

Overview

Sasol established the Dependent Scholarship Program to provide financial aid to children of Sasol employees in the United States.

The Program

Each year, five $5,000 scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis to applicants chosen by Sasol’s program administrator, Scholarship America®. The award is a one-time only payment, and checks are made payable to the recipient’s chosen college.

The scholarship awards may be used for any purpose incidental to receiving a college education, including tuition, books and fees.

Scholarship winners may attend the accredited college or university of their choice and may select the academic field they wish to pursue.

No further obligations are associated with the award once the recipient receives their $5,000 payment.

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.
