Waste Connections has established a scholarship program to assist children 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 Waste Connections Scholarship Program must:
Children of Corporate and Regional Directors, Vice Presidents and Executives are ineligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years until the vocational program is completed or 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 Waste Connections, and continuation of the program by Waste Connections.
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, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Waste Connections play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in late June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Waste Connections. Payment is made in August.
