- HermanMiller Cares
Along with the Michael Volkema Scholarship Fund, HermanMiller Cares have a longstanding and thriving relationship with Scholarship America, one that has grown for over 20 years. The organization’s dedication to providing scholarships to the children of employees of Herman Miller has a celebrated history of supporting and equipping young people for success. This work and impact embodies the same spirit Scholarship America works to achieve through scholarship programs.
As a pharmaceutical research and development company with 30,000 employees in 70 countries; AbbVie’s Humira brand is the best-selling drug in the world. The AbbVie Foundation, AbbVie Patient Assistance Foundation and the newly-established AbbVie Employee Assistance Fund all support scholarships for employees, families and patients.
Scholarship America is thrilled to welcome musical guest Mandy Harvey!
Mandy Harvey is a deaf American singer-songwriter, and winner of Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent. She lost her residual hearing in 2006-2007 at age eighteen due to a connective tissue disorder, forcing her to leave her college program in Vocal Music Education. She didn’t stay away from music for long — and her performances have attracted the attention of those around the world, adding to her message of “hope, dream and believe.”
