Who may apply?
Any high school senior who is the daughter, son or grandchild of an AUC member company employee, and will be enrolling full or part time in an academic institution of higher education, beginning in September. The enrollment may be in any curriculum for any number of years.  This may be a four-year college, a community college or a trade school anywhere in the United States. The amount of the scholarship is $1,000.00.

How do I apply?
Complete the application forms in accordance with the instructions and send to the AUC office at the address provided.

How will the application be judged?
Selections will be based on the general worthiness of the application.  The AUC Educational Trust Scholarship Committee will consider (1) scholastic standing, (2) ACT and/or SAT scores, (3) extra curricular activities, (4) career goals, (5) past employment, (6) essay and (7) thoroughness of the completed application.

How will the confidentiality of the application be protected?
When the application has been received by AUC each application is given a number and an acknowledgment is sent to the applicant.  The application is handled only by a single designee appointed by the association.  Once this has been done the first page of the applicant will be placed in a sealed envelope marked only with the application number.  The named designee then reviews the application in detail and removes any and all words or references that provide information relating to the applicant's name, sex, race, religion, address or AUC member company.  The Scholarship Committee will meet at predetermined times and review only sanitized copies of the application.  Should any committee member recognize the applicant through the remaining information that member will disqualify themselves from consideration of that application and the remaining committee members will make the determinations regarding that application.  Only winning envelopes are opened and the others are destroyed.

What must accompany the application?
The application must be returned along with (1) a transcript of high school grades through the latest period prior to April 20th and (2) a letter of recommendation from a member of the high school faculty.  That letter shall include the number of students in the graduating class and the applicant's standing in the class.
