Scholarship Qualifications

CGA Educational Foundation scholarships are open to high school seniors, college undergraduate and graduate students who are employees of, or the dependent sons or daughters of employees of, a CGA member company.  The employee must have been employed by a single CGA member company for at least one year as of the April 1, 2018 program deadline and must be employed at the time the awards are announced.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit, evidence of outstanding character and leadership potential. Additionally, a number of awards have specific eligibility criteria. By completing one application, students are evaluated for all scholarships for which they are eligible.

Undergraduate student applicants must be planning to enroll as a full-time college student in the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters at an accredited college or university in the United States.  Some scholarships are available to part-time enrolled students as well.

Graduate student applicants must be planning to enroll in a graduate program during the Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 semester at an accredited college or university in the United States.

All scholarships are one-time awards that are applied toward the recipient’s educational expenses at any accredited college or university in the United States. Awards are not renewable; however, students can re-apply each year as long as they continue to meet the eligibility requirements.
