Stanley Black & Decker offers a competitive scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to pursue post-secondary education in college and vocational programs. Each year, renewable scholarships are offered for full-time study at any accredited post-secondary institution of the student’s choice.
This scholarship 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the Stanley Black & Decker Scholarship Program must be:
*Child is defined as the son, daughter, stepson, stepdaughter, legally adopted child, or legal ward supported solely by the guardian.
**Part-time is defined as a regular part-time employee who is scheduled to work more than 25 hours per week on a regular basis.
Twenty-five (25) awards of $1000 will be awarded to undergraduate students. One (1) award of $5000 will be awarded to a student with an engineering major. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continued employment of the student’s parent at Stanley Black & Decker.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
