C3 Creative Consumer Concepts (C3) believes an education is an important investment in the lives of young people. The purpose of the Fund shall be to provide scholarships to children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren of C3 employees who intend to further their education at an accredited private education institution (K-12 or post-secondary), two-year or four-year college or university or technical school.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship, students shall:
- be a natural, adopted or step-child, niece, nephew or grandchild of a current regular full-time C3 employee who has been employed by C3 for at least one year or a part time (20-30 hours) who has been employed by C3 for at least 3 years at the time of the student’s original application; and
- be enrolled or planning to enroll as a full-time student at an accredited private education institution (K-12 or post-secondary), two-year or four-year college or university or technical school;
- have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA on a four-point system (or its equivalent); and
- submit two letters of recommendation from individuals not related to the student.
Consideration may also be given to the applicant’s financial need and involvement in extracurricular activities in school or in the community (e.g., school activities, sports, performing arts, community volunteering, employment or other time-consuming activities while in school).
Students may re-apply for additional years of scholarship awards.
