The Snyder Family Education Assistance Program
Application status: Closed

The William B. Snyder Family and The GEICO Philanthropic Foundation have established an education assistance program to assist associates’ children with tuition expenses to attend a private high school.

This 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the The Snyder Family Education Assistance Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of any current full-time or part-time associate of GEICO** who meet these requirements:
    • Full-time associates must have worked for the companies for at least one continuous year by the application deadline date.
    • Part-time associates must have been employed by GEICO for three continuous years by the application deadline date.
  • Current students in grades 8-11 who plan to enroll or who are already attending a full-time course of study at an accredited private secondary school for grades 9-12.

Children of GEICO officers are not eligible for this scholarship.

*Dependent children must be primarily supported by the associate. They may be natural or legally adopted children or stepchildren.

**GEICO refers to GEICO Corporation and to all subsidiaries (excluding McLane Company, Inc., Clayton Homes, Inc. and TTI, Inc.)


Annual Awards will be given equal to 50% of school costs or a maximum of $5,000 (whichever is less) per student per year.

Awards are renewable through grade 12 on the basis of satisfactory performance, continued enrollment at a private high school, and the continuation of the scholarship program.

Awards are for study at private high schools only.

Selection of Recipients

Recipients are selected on the basis of financial need.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of GEICO play a part in the selection.

The maximum amount of awards distributed will be equal to 25% of the total number of eligible applicants.


All applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes award payments on behalf of the William B. Snyder Family and The GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. Payment is made in one installment in early August.

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