Topco Associates, LLC (Topco) has established a scholarship program to honor the life of Ken Guy and the many contributions he made during his 41 years of service with Topco. The Ken Guy Memorial Scholarship Program will assist associates’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable 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 race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the The Ken Guy Memorial Scholarship must:
Children of officers are ineligible to apply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. One (1) award will be granted.
The award is renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of providing proof of continued enrollment in a qualified school as defined under eligibility requirements. Maximum lifetime award is $10,000 per recipient.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may
reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Topco in early August. Topco will host an award event with the award recipient, parent and members of the Ken Guy family. Event date is to be determined. More information will be provided at the time of notification.
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 finalists is made by Scholarship America. Final recipient selection is made by members of The Ken Guy Family. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
