Fred Weber, Sr. Memorial Scholarship

The Fred Weber, Sr. Memorial Scholarship is open to dependent children or spouses of full-time employees of Fred Weber, Inc. or a subsidiary company. Dependent children or spouses of a person who was a full-time employee of Fred Weber, Inc. or a subsidiary company at the time of his or her death are also eligible. A full-time employee is defined as a person, either union or non-union, who worked more than 1,000 hours in the twelve-month period prior to the application deadline, and who, on the application deadline date, is considered an active employee of the company. In the case of a deceased parent, the parent must have worked 1,000 hours in the twelve-month period prior to his or her death. Children of officers and directors are not eligible.

The candidate may be a high school senior, a current college student, or enrolling in the Fall as a full-time, undergraduate student in an accredited, two- or four-year nonprofit college, university or trade/technical school in the United States.

Selection will be based on the candidate’s scholastic record, participation in school and community activities, and academic potential at the college level. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Please answer all questions that apply to you, even if they are not marked “required.”

Up to two $2,500 scholarships are available. Recipients may apply for renewal for up to three additional consecutive years if a cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent on any other scale) is maintained and enrollment as a full-time student is continued. Recipients must provide an official, cumulative transcript each summer as part of the renewal application process.
