Scholarship America - State Farm Good Neighbor Scholarship Program (ID 1291)
- Start Date:
- Up to twenty-six (26) selected recipients will receive a $2,500 award.
Awards may be renewed up to one additional year based on maintaining satisfactory academic performance and full-time enrollment.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
- The State Farm Companies Foundation believes all children deserve an education that helps them reach their potential and prepares them for life. The Foundation has established a scholarship program as part of ongoing efforts to address and raise awareness of the nation’s drop-out crisis – a student drops out of high school every 26 seconds. Students are encouraged to be more than a statistic and graduate high school as the first step to being ready to contribute to the 21st Century workforce.
Our support goes to programs that provide students the instruction, resources, and support they need to succeed. The State Farm Good Neighbor Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to high school seniors who plan to attend college, technical, or vocational school, but may not be able to meet the expenses of a higher education without such aid and often do not qualify for other scholarships.
The program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America.
