Prolec GE Waukesha Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

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 Prolec GE Waukesha Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 23 and under, of full-time Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc. employees.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. 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 Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc., and continuation of the program by Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in late May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc. Payment is made in equal installments in early August.

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 educational and career goals and objectives, 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 Prolec-GE Waukesha, Inc. play a part in the selection. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
