The Suburban Collection Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: March 15, 2020 3:00 pm CT

We are proud to announce The Suburban Collection Scholarship Program.  The scholarship program was established to assist children of employees and to thank those who have helped to build The Suburban Collection.

The scholarship program a.k.a “Suburban Scholars” has been designed to give something back to the men and women who have contributed so much time and energy to the success of The Suburban Collection.  The program benefits children of full-time employees who plan to pursue post-secondary education in college and vocational programs.  Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at any accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This 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.

Thanks for making the choice!
