Frequently Asked Questions
What is a corporate scholarship?
A corporate scholarship simply refers to any scholarship that is sponsored by a company or corporation. Many brands offer such scholarships or even have their own, separate foundations set up to help students. Most of these scholarships aim to help high school students, but there are also a few targeted towards undergraduate and graduate students.
Can my company give a scholarship?
Certainly! First, you should decide whether your corporation would like to set up a regular or endowed scholarship (will recur every year, but requires a larger initial contribution). Then, you would go through the typical steps of setting up a scholarship – from establishing a budget and finding funding to establishing criteria and a deadline. Make sure to also do any required paperwork to make it official.
Alternatively, your company can reach out to universities or community foundations (find local ones here) to set up scholarships through those organizations instead.
