UScellular™ Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: April 15, 2021 3:00 pm CT

The UScellular™ Scholarship Program is designed to promote education and make financial assistance for education available to sons and daughters of UScellular™ associates. Our scholarship program is symbolic of our conviction that education is key to America’s future. We sincerely hope that these scholarships will be of lasting value to those students who receive them. We at UScellular™ are delighted to invest in the future of our work force.

This 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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the UScellular™ Scholarship Program must be:

  • A child, up to the age of 23, of a full-time associate of UScellular™ with one year of continuous service at the time of application, and who are employed at the time the award checks are issued.
  • Accepted into full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational/technical school for the entire upcoming academic year. Students already in their final year of undergraduate study may not apply.

*Children of UScellular™ Officers are not eligible for this program.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award.  Up to five (5) awards will be granted.

No more than one award will be granted at a UScellular™ location in the same year provided there are qualified applicants. A limit of one award per family per year may be granted.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at UScellular™, and continuation of the program by UScellular™.

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 goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need is not considered.

In no instance does any officer or employee of UScellular™ 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.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of UScellular™.  Payments are made in August and December.
