Valmet has established the Valmet Scholarship Program to assist U.S. and Canadian employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year college or university of the student’s choice.
This scholarship 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the Valmet Scholarship Program must be:
Up to five (5) awards of $1,000 each will be granted.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent) in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by Valmet.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Valmet play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Valmet. Payment is made in one installment in early August.
