Working at Scholarship America
Scholarship America helps students fulfill their college dreams. Since it was founded in 1958, Scholarship America has distributed $4.5 billion to more than 2.8 million students, making it the nation’s largest private scholarship provider. The organization runs its own national and community-based scholarship programs, and works with partners wishing to establish scholarship and support programs to lower barriers to a college education and give students the support needed to succeed.
We are a national organization with principal offices in Minneapolis and Saint Peter, Minnesota and Washington, D.C. Currently, Scholarship America staff are working remotely, with only a few team members accessing our offices for essential tasks. Interviews, hiring and onboarding are also being done remotely. We are carefully monitoring state and federal updates to ensure the safety of our people and to provide the best possible experience for our team, our students and our partners.
We offer unique employment opportunities in areas such as Finance, Technology, Marketing, Scholarship Administration/Operations, Client Solutions and Development. We strive to find passionate employees with great relationship building, problem solving, attention to detail and customer service skills. Our employees are our number one resource, and we strive to provide a competitive and compelling total reward package in a flexible and team-oriented work environment.
Scholarship America knows valuing diversity is important to ensure success in serving clients. We do not tolerate discriminating behavior and demonstrate our commitment to diversity by recruiting and hiring a diverse workforce to reflect the clients we serve.
Scholarship America is proud to be recognized as a National Standard Top Workplace by Energage and the StarTribune. This recognition honors our commitment to our values, our open communication between employees and management and our work to innovate and operate efficiently.
