View the full eligibility requirements.
If I want to apply for both the Leadership Scholarship and True Inspiration Scholarship, do I need to fill out two applications?
Nope, Team Members only need to complete one application. Recipients will be chosen for each scholarship based on our eligibility requirements.
Will all applicants be recipients?
Not all applicants will be recipients. In 2017, 3,424 Leadership Scholarships and 12 True Inspiration Scholarships were awarded from a pool of nearly 5,000 applicants. However, all Team Members have access to the Tuition Reduction Network throughout the year.
Will scholarships be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis?
No. All scholarship applications will be reviewed and graded on each of the eligibility requirements.
I am still in high school. Can I apply?
Yes! Team Members still in high school are eligible if they will be dual-enrolled or enrolling full-time at a postsecondary institution for the 2018-19 academic year.
What about grad school? Can I apply, too?
Yes! Same as above.
How many hours of community service do I need?
There is not a specific requirement for hours, but Team Members need to have participated in community service during the twelve months prior to applying. The level of community service will be evaluated and considered, along with other requirements.
If I am selected as a recipient, how can I use my award?
Awards can be used for tuition, fees, books and educational related expenses incurred at the school. Scholarship checks are made payable to the school and cannot be applied toward student loans or refunded to students.
I am uncertain of what school I will be attending for the 2018-19 academic year. Can I still apply?
Absolutely! When filling out the application, simply enter the school you think you will be attending. Once recipients are selected, school choices can be changed.
