Applications for AAMA Scholarship Program Open January 1, Partner Program AvailableDecember 19, 2011
The application process for the AAMA Scholarship Program and the Partner Program opens January 1, 2012.
The AAMA Scholarship is a one-time award of $2,000. Applicants are judged on grade point average, college entrance exam scores and a 500-word essay. All children of employees of AAMA member companies are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to obtain financial aid for higher education in pursuit of a degree in an engineering or technical field relating to the building products industry. Eligible candidates must be high school seniors or college students who are children of employees of AAMA member companies in good standing.
The AAMA Scholarship Partner Program is another member benefit that is again being offered in 2012. The Partner Program allows companies to extend an added benefit to their employees’ children with opportunities for financial aid in furthering their education.
Or, if your company already offers a scholarship program, partnering with AAMA can significantly reduce the administrative resources that your company allocates to its program. In the Partner Program, AAMA oversees the program set-up, including the online application process and promotional materials, and also utilizes a third-party selection team to review applications and select scholarship recipients. AAMA will communicate with your company about the status of submitted applications and final winner selection.
More details about both programs are available on the AAMA Scholarship Program web page.
