SC Johnson Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: January 15, 2020 3:00 pm CT

SC Johnson, through its corporate foundation SC Johnson Giving, Inc., has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college, vocational school or other approved skill development 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, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the SC Johnson Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children (natural or legally adopted) or step-children (living in the employee’s household or receiving primary support from the employee) who are unmarried and age 25 or under, of regular, part-time, retired or deceased SC Johnson employees who have a minimum of one year of continuous service with the company on January 15, 2020. Children of employees of SC Johnson subsidiaries or associate companies are ineligible. The program is only open to children of United States employees.
  • Applicants must be current high school seniors, high school graduates, or college undergraduates who are enrolled or planning to enroll in a full time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational technical school, or other approved skill development institution for the entire academic year.

 

Award Amounts

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.

Scholarships to sons and daughters of company officers are limited to one-time honorariums in the amount of $1,000.

For programs up to four years in length, awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Students who are in a five-year program as verified by the school, may renew up to four times. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of past academic performance and future potential, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, career and educational aspirations and goals, unusual personal or family circumstances, an outside appraisal, and letter of reference.

Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award.  Larger awards are granted to recipients whose families have less means to contribute toward postsecondary expenses. Smaller awards are granted to recipients whose families have greater ability to provide financial assistance.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of SC Johnson play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in March.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of SC Johnson. Payments are made in equal installments August and December.
