Sheehy Scholar College Fund
Deadline to apply: February 28, 2023 3:00 pm CT

Sheehy Auto Stores, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist employees and 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 scholarships 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 race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Sheehy Scholar College Fund must:

  • Be full-time Sheehy Auto Stores, Inc. employees or children of full-time employees who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, or current college undergraduates
  • Plan to enroll in part-time or full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award amount determined by the following Sheehy employee annual salary ranges:

Scholarship Levels

  • If the team member’s W2 for the prior calendar year was <$100,000, the award is $5000
  • If the team member’s W2 for the prior calendar year was between $100,000 and $200,000 the award is $2500
  • If the team member’s W2 for the prior calendar year was > $200,000 the award is $1500

Awards may be renewed for up to three (3) additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance, part-time or full-time enrollment, and continued full-time employment by the Sheehy employee.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Sheehy Auto Stores, Inc. Payment is made in early August.

Selection of Recipients

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.
