Thomson Reuters Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: April 28, 2021 3:00 pm CT

Thomson Reuters has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

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.

Instructions en Français

Applicants to the Thomson Reuters Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent children of a US or Canada Thomson Reuters employee working 20 hours or more, at a Grade TR3 level or below, and with a minimum of 1-year continuous service.
  • The applicant must be a high school senior or student currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited college, university, or vocational-technical school.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to fifty-five (55) awards will be granted.

Students who will be graduating after the fall semester are eligible to apply, but may only receive half the award amount, $1,250, if selected as a recipient.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational aspirations and goals, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.

Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Thomson Reuters play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

All applicants will be notified in June.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Thomson Reuters. Payment is made in August.
