Securian Financial Scholarship Fund
Application status: Closed

Securian Financial has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

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.

Applicants to the Securian Financial Scholarship Fund must:

  • Be dependent children (natural, adopted, stepchildren or legal wards) of a current, benefits-eligible associate.
  • Be high school seniors who plan to enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university, or vocational-technical school and be accepted by that institution during the year for which the scholarship is given.

Children of Home Office Council (HOC) members are ineligible for this opportunity.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Up to four awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance in a full-time undergraduate course of study and
continued parental employment with Securian Financial as a benefits-eligible associate at the time of
verification.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in late May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Securian Financial. Payment is made in August.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of financial need, 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, and an online recommendation. Preference will be given to under-represented applicants.

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, will be considered in the evaluation process. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Securian Financial play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 2, 2022 3:00 pm CT.

Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
