YKK Corporation of America has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship 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.
*Full-time study is defined as full-time enrollment for the entire upcoming academic year.
Awards to students attending a four-year college or university may be renewed up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Awards for study at a two-year college or vocational-technical school may be renewed one additional year. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continued parental employment at YKK. A two-year college recipient must reapply to the program if transferring to a four-year college.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of YKK Corporation of America. Payment is made in mid-July. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of YKK Corporation of America play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 10, 2023 3:00 pm Central Time.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
