Everence college scholarship

A college scholarship for you or your children is one of the potential benefits of doing business with Everence®.

Scholarship recipients for the 2016-17 academic year have been selected. For the 2017-18 academic year, scholarship winners will be chosen by their local office to receive a $750 scholarship.

National scholarships – one of $1,250 and two of $250 – will be granted to three of the students chosen for the regional scholarships. So the top three recipients will receive scholarships totaling $2,000 or $1,000.

Eligibility requirements
