Simonton Windows® Accepting 2012 Scholarship ApplicationsFebruary 13 2012
COLUMBUS, OHIO – The application process is now open for dependent children of employees of Simonton Windows facilities nationwide (including SimEx in W. Va.) to apply for 2012 scholarships for post-high school educational support. Recipients of scholarships will be determined based on financial need, academic achievement, and leadership abilities and activities.
“Since the launch of this program in 2005, Simonton Windows Scholarships have been distributed to 56 students,” says Terry Craig, vice president of human resources at Simonton Windows. “The awards distributed during the past six years total $110,125 and we’re exceptionally proud to help the children of our employees further their education with these scholarships.”
Eligible applicants include those dependents of Simonton employees who have graduated or will be graduating from high school (or the equivalent) and desire to attend a college, university, technical or trade school, vocational school or business school. Additionally, students who are currently enrolled in undergraduate studies may apply.
“A wonderful aspect of this scholarship program is that dependents of Simonton employees may reapply for scholarships throughout their entire time of post-high school studies,” says Craig. “This means that if a student previously applied and did not receive a scholarship, or if they received a scholarship in the past and still need financial assistance, they can continue to reapply for consideration each year.”
Scholarship awards typically range from $1,500 to $2,500 per person and recipients are chosen by an independent advisory committee. There is no “cap” on the number of recipients each year. Selection of scholarship award recipients is completely dependent on the quality of the applicants. Representatives of Simonton Windows do not participate in the selection process.
The Simonton Windows Scholarship is managed by Our Community’s Foundation (the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and Regional Affiliates). Those dependents of Simonton employees interested in applying for the 2012 scholarship opportunity must go to www.pacfwv.com. On the left side of the screen, click on “Find Scholarships” and then click on “Applications and Forms” to locate the “Simonton Windows Scholarship.” All guidelines should be followed carefully in the submission process. Deadline for submitting applications is March 7, 2012. Questions can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-866-428-4328.
