How It Works
The annual Dependent Scholarship program offers two types of scholarships for your children:
Tier 1. Students who have been accepted to a four-year college or university are eligible for a $4,000 award. It is renewable for three years (for a total of four years) if a 2.7 grade point average is maintained.
Tier 2. Students who have been accepted to an accredited community college are eligible for a $2,000 award. It is renewable for one year (for a total of two years) if a 2.7 grade point average is maintained.
You must be employed at the time the award is granted. However, continued employment is not required to maintain the dependent scholarship. The scholarship is renewable as long as the award criteria is met.
Scholarships are available to dependent children of active Stimson employees. Your dependent must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- High school senior or prior high school graduate, up to age 26, as of the annual application deadline for first time recipients.
- A 3.0 grade point average or higher from high school, home school or with a GED, and
- Attendance to a four-year college or university, or accredited community college, trade school or vocational school for the 2023 – 2024 school year.
How To Apply
An online form is available through March 1 each year on the OSAC website. Be sure that your dependent tracks their application status to ensure it is “accepted as valid” by logging into their OSAC account. For more information, or if you have questions about the scholarship application, contact OSAC at 800-452-8807, option 1.
Award recipients are announced in late April or early May. The Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) will elect and notify award recipients.
