Univest has established a scholarship program to assist children and grandchildren of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Univest Financial Corporation Scholarship Program must be:
Children and grandchildren of officers above Vice President are not eligible to apply to the program.
If selected as a recipient, an undergraduate student will receive a $2,000 award and a vocational-technical student will receive a $1,000 award.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements and may receive up to four awards maximum.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Univest play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in February.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Univest. Payment is made in early August.
