Superior Essex Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Superior Essex, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

The 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. 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 for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Superior Essex Scholarship Program must:

  • Be eligible dependent* children, age 25 and under, of full time Superior Essex Inc. employees based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico. To be eligible to apply for dependents, employees must have a minimum of one year of service and be currently employed by Superior Essex Inc. at the time of the award.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Applicants must be high school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in a full time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two year or four year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire academic year.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Superior Essex, Inc. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to 15 awards will be granted.

There will be two designated awards. One will be from Ontario, Canada and one will be from Mexico.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards will be granted to help underwrite the costs of full-time course study at:

  • Four-year colleges
  • Two-year junior and community colleges
  • Vocational-technical schools

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
