LP Building Solutions awards scholarships
LP Building Solutions (LP) announced it has awarded more than $95,000 in scholarships to the children of LP employees for the 2020–2021 school year.
A total of 65 students from ranging in geography from Jacksonville, Fla. to Golden, British Columbia were selected as recipients of this year’s LP Scholarship Program.
The LP Scholarship Program recognizes and rewards the accomplishments of employees’ children who excel in their studies and make positive contributions in their communities. Since 2001, LP has provided over $2 million in scholarships to help more than 375 students complete their undergraduate college education.
The LP Scholarship Program awards recipients $1,500 per year for up to four years of full-time undergraduate study or until the student has completed their program, whichever occurs first, for a maximum award of $6,000 per student.
“We are very proud to offer this scholarship program to the children of our employees,” said LP Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources & Transformation Officer Robin Everhart. “Education has been a cornerstone of the company’s values since our founding in 1973. Through community grants, our emphasis on employee education and training, our tuition reimbursement program, and the LP Scholarship Program for the children of our employees, we’re able to bring this value to life in a very meaningful way. The 65 students receiving awards this year have worked hard to achieve academic success, and it is our privilege to support them along their collegiate journey.”
Administered by Scholarship America, submissions are evaluated based on each student’s academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal.
Financial need as calculated by Scholarship America must be demonstrated for the student to be awarded a scholarship.
LP Building Solutions is based in Nashville, Tenn.
