SWM has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ dependent children who plan to pursue postsecondary education leading to a baccalaureate degree. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at any accredited college or university in the United States or Canada.
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, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the SWM Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship Program must be:
Children of SWM officers are not eligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to twelve (12) awards will be granted each year. Awards may be renewed up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale, continued full-time enrollment in an accredited four-year college or university in the U.S. or Canada, and good standing in the university and the community, and parent continues to be employed with SWM or subsidiary.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in late June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of SWM. Payments are made in mid-August. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and one letter of recommendation.
Financial need is not considered. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of SWM play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
