The Chevron International REACH (Recognizing Excellence and Achievement) Scholarship Program is sponsored by Chevron for the sons and daughters of its employees and retirees. The program was established to recognize and assist outstanding children who plan to pursue post-secondary education.
Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time undergraduate study at colleges, universities, and vocational schools. The scholarships for children of non-U.S.-payroll employees are managed by the San Francisco office of the Institute of International Education.
Four-year scholarships, ranging in value from US$500 to US$2,500, and honorariums, ranging from US$1,000 to US$1,500, will be offered to children of Chevron employees.
Awards, other than the non-renewable awards, may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a first degree or certificate is earned, whichever occurs first. Awards, other than the non-renewable awards, to attend a two-year college or vocational-technical school may be renewed once. Renewal is contingent upon:
-satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study
-continued parental employment
-continuation of the program by Chevron
Awards are for undergraduate study only. Scholarships are intended to assist students as they pursue undergraduate study and are NOT intended to cover all educational expenses. Recipients are responsible for the balance of funding, including tuition and fees, books and supplies, living expenses, and transportation.
Applicants to the Chevron International REACH Scholarship Program must meet the following criteria as of the application due date:
