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.

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.
Applicants will be notified in mid-June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Skillsoft Corporation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
