Description

The Owens Corning Dependent Scholarship
Since the Owens Corning Foundation was established in 1978, the Foundation has been at work responding to the requests of its stakeholder communities. Established to enhance lives through charitable contributions, the Foundation champions programs that provide access to education and affordable housing for those most in need.

To promote our goal of access to education and academic excellence, the Owens Corning Dependent Scholarship Fund was established as an enduring gift for the dependents of Owens Corning employees to assist students in reaching their full potential who demonstrate scholastic aptitude and financial need.

Those eligible to apply for the scholarship include the children and/or legal dependents (excludes spouses) of all current salaried and hourly full-time employees of Owens Corning or its majority owned affiliates. Children and/or legal dependents of retirees, interns, co-ops, temporary staff, vendors and contractors are not eligible.

Scholarship awards will be paid directly to the higher education institution (and not to the student) for purposes of covering education-related expenses such as tuition, fees, books and supplies, and room and board (on campus).

Scholarship Award
$2,500.00 USD or equivalent outside the U.S. Number of scholarship awards shall be determined by the Owens Corning Foundation Board.

This Scholarship is administered by Toledo Community Foundation. The above-stated criteria may be revised from time to time as deemed appropriate by the Owens Corning Foundation Board.
