The Self Storage Association Foundation (SSAF) of the Self Storage Association is pleased to announce that applications for the Self Storage Association Foundation Scholarship Program have been accepted from qualified individuals who will be attending postsecondary school in the 2015-2016 academic year.
The SSA Foundation Scholarship Program provides scholarship awards of up to $5000 toward postsecondary education tuition and fees. This is a need-based scholarship program for students with at least a "C" cumulative average or 2.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 point scale.
Recipients must be employees (or their children / grand children) of companies which are direct members of the Self Storage Association (national). Eligibility requirements also include a demonstration of integrity within school and /or workplace and documented pursuit of meaningful education at an accredited postsecondary education institution.
Applicants selected as award recipients will be notified in July.
Scholarships range up to $5000 per academic year. All disbursements are pending proof of enrollment and will be made directly to the recipient’s academic institution on an annual basis.
Scholarships are to be used only for tuition, fees, course-related expenses, and room and board.
The recipient must maintain a good conduct standing and a 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale) cumulative GPA. Should a recipient fall below the required 2.0 GPA , drop out between semester disbursements, or lower credits from the amount required for the scholarship, the recipient forfeits the remainder of the scholarship.
A portion of the scholarship may be considered taxable by the IRS. The recipient is responsible for any tax liability incurred as a result of the award.
The application period will close on May 1, 2015 for the 2015-2016 Scholarship Award.
The SSA Foundation will not discriminate against any person in the selection process on the basis of age, race, religion, sex, or national origin.
