About EAP Scholarships

Thanks to our generous donors, EAP’s Educational Foundation provides the families of our member companies with exclusive access to $14,000 - $18,000 in scholarship funds annually! The application process opens in January each year.

Educational Foundation Scholarships

Scholarships are intended to help graduating high school students advance their educational endeavors, either at a four-year college/university or a vocational/technical school. The amount of the award and quantity of awards disbursed is determined annually. 

For 2021, the Foundation Board has approved up to $18,000 in scholarships; the number of awards could vary, but were been designated by institution type as follows:

  • Up to four (4) scholarships for $4,000 will be awarded to applicants attending a two or four-year college/university.
  • Up to two (2) scholarships for $2,000 will be awarded to applicants attending a vocational or technical school.

The 2021 Scholarship Program will open on January 5.
