UBS Scholarship Program for Employees' Children
Application status: Closed

UBS has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college.

The 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.

Applicants to the UBS Scholarship Program for Employees’ Children must be:

  • A dependent* child, age 24 and under, of a parent or guardian who is a full-time or part-time employee** with a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll in the upcoming term, or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited four-year college or university located in the U.S. or Canada for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee and claimed as dependents of the employee for tax purposes.

**The employee must be employed by UBS as of the application deadline date and remain employed by UBS as of the program employment verification date.

UBS Employees are persons who:

  • Are employed by the UBS Investment Bank, UBS Securities LLC., Asset Management or Group Functions business divisions located in the United States (including employees of entities aligned with these business divisions)
  • Are employed and specifically designated from the UBS Global Wealth Management and Wealth Management Swiss Bank business division located in the United States
  • Are employed by any UBS Group entity in Canada, Bahamas or the Cayman Islands (regardless of business division)

Award Information:

  • Awards ranging from $3,000 to $5,000 will be given.
  • Awards are for one year only and are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year provided they continue to meet eligibility requirements.
  • Awards are for undergraduate study only.


Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of UBS. Payments are made in one installment in U.S. dollars in mid-August.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Preference is given to students who demonstrate financial need.

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

As part of your application, you must upload the following document:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Unofficial or online transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 6, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time.

Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
