GuideWell is focused on helping people and communities achieve better health. Each year, the company awards college scholarships to eligible dependents of GuideWell employees.
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.
Applicants to the GuideWell Dependent Scholarship Program must:
One (1) child per family is eligible to receive scholarship funds for a given year, including renewal scholarships.
Dependents of any GuideWell Enterprise Officer or equivalent subsidiary role are not eligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an $8,000 award.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years for no more than a total of four (4) years provided the following program requirements are met:
Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
Gender, ethnicity and employee location will be considered in the selection process to support GuideWell Enterprise diversity objectives.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of GuideWell play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students not receiving the scholarship may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of GuideWell. Payments are made in equal installments in early August and mid-December.
