Xerox announces minority scholarship program
Xerox is committed to the academic success of all minority students, and thus is announcing the 2012 Xerox Technical Minority Scholarship Program. The program awards between $1,000 and $10,000 to qualified minorities enrolled in a technical degree program at the bachelor level or above. The exact scholarship amount award depends on the student’s tuition balance, academic excellence and classification.
Applicants must be academic high-achievers (3.0 or better GPA). Applicants must be United States citizens or visa-holding permanent residents of African American, Asian, Pacific Island, Native American, Native Alaskan or Hispanic descent. They must be enrolled as a full time undergraduate or graduate student in any of the following technical fields: chemistry, information management, computing and software systems, material science, printing management science, laser optics, physics, material science and engineering (chemical, computer, electrical, imaging, manufacturing, mechanical, optical or software).
All applications must be submitted online by Sept. 30 or received at the program office with a postmark dated prior to Sept. 30.
Winners and non-winners will be notified by Dec. 31. Individuals not selected to receive an award are eligible to submit another application for the next year. All qualification criteria must be met for the succeeding year’s application period.
