The Teknor Apex Company has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees 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 Norman M. Fain Scholarship Program must be:
The authorized total distribution for awards is $25,000. Typically, ten (10) recipients have been selected to receive $2,500 each. The award shall not exceed the cost of tuition, books, and fees. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. At least one recipient will be selected from each sister company and at least 50% of recipients will be selected from the children of hourly employees, provided qualified applicants are received.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified by mid-June.
Scholarship America processes Norman M. Fain scholarship payments on behalf of Teknor Apex Company. Payment is made in August.
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 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 Teknor Apex Company play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
