USSC Scholarships are Available: Deadline is April 1

USSC scholarships are available to employees of USSC member firms or dependents of an employee at a USSC member firm. In addition, once the student has been chosen by the Scholarship Committee as a scholarship recipient, he or she may renew the scholarship for three additional years providing the student maintains a 3.0 grade point average. This is a membership opportunity that should not be overlooked, especially in light of increasing costs for higher education.

You can apply online by clicking here.  There’s also a form and complete information in your membership binder or you can call the USSC office at 215/785-1922.

Following are the requirements for application:

* The student must submit a completed application form, supply a current transcript of grades, and provide a short essay.

* If the student is going into the field of art or graphic design, he or she must submit samples of their artistic skills.  Send prints or a CD disc with artwork in PDF format.

* The student must have a high school grade point average of 2.5 or better and must maintain an average of 3.0 to renew the scholarship in subsequent years.
