Skillsoft Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Skillsoft Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue education in undergraduate study, graduate study, or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®. Scholarship America is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement 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 Skillsoft Scholarship Program must:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time benefits-eligible U.S. and international Skillsoft employees who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate course of 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 a $2,500 award. Up to twenty (20) awards will be granted each year. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate or graduate study or vocational school programs.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.

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