About the Program
RSPA has awarded more than $2 million to families of RSPA member companies and that tradition continues with you. Employees of all reseller members (and their families) who have been members for 3 years, can apply for scholarships to help ease the costs associated with higher education.
Only RSPA RESELLER members, who have a record in good standing in the RSPA for at least the immediate past 3 consecutive years, are eligible for the scholarship program.
Candidates must be one of the following:
The member employee must have at least 3 years of service with member company.
Neither part-time employees nor their children qualify; Part-time is defined as 20 hours per week or less.
Candidate must be at least 16 years old on the day the application for the current year is due.
Candidate must have graduated from high school or its equivalent before July 1 of the year in which he or she will use the scholarship.
Candidate must have sufficient achievement to be accepted by an accredited post-secondary school.
Scholarship recipients of one year may re-apply for additional scholarships in succeeding years, up to a total of four awards. Complete application packages do not have to be made in consecutive years; however, the student must re-apply each year he or she wishes to be considered.
Scholarship applications are reviewed by an independent, third-party evaluator to determine awards.
