Synchrony has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college, university or vocational-technical school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited or bona-fide 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. 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, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, veteran status or other characteristic(s) protected by law.
Applicants to the Synchrony Scholarship Program must be:
Children of senior executive employees and company officers are ineligible. Children and family members of Board members and Officers of Synchrony Foundation are ineligible.
Awards are one-time only. Past recipients may not apply. Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Synchrony. Payment is made in one installment in August via check, or wire transfer depending on student location.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of Synchrony play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
