The Baxter International Foundation has established a competitive, merit-based scholarship program to assist children of eligible Baxter employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
The scholarship award amount is $3,000 USD.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships 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, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, financial need or national origin.
Applicants to the Baxter Global Scholarship Program must:
Children of Vice Presidents and above and children of retired employees are not eligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $3,000 USD award. This program is highly competitive, and only the top 25% of eligible applicants will be chosen to receive an award. Provided qualified applications are received, awards will be granted in proportion to the number of applications received per region – North and South America (Americas); Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); Asia-Pacific (APAC).
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon meeting eligibility requirements, satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by Baxter International Foundation.
Recipients who attend a United States Military Academy will be eligible for a one-time only award of $3,000 USD.
Non-recipients may reapply each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study and can be used for qualified education-related expenses (tuition, fees, books, and required supplies) only.
