Valmet Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

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.

Lignes directrices en français

Applicants to the Valmet Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of active regular full-time Valmet U.S. and Canadian employees who have a minimum of one year of continuous employment with the company as of the application deadline date
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • Graduating high school seniors (Students outside the U.S. must be in their final year of upper or higher secondary school)
