Automotive giant Buick is awarding 1,100 scholarships to entering college freshman this year with the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program. The scholarships will be presented to students planning to major in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math), design, marketing or finance. Expressing an interest in the automotive industry, using the mentioned areas of study, is an important criterion for scholarship applicants.
The available scholarships will be presented in two denominations. One thousand students will be awarded an annual amount, for four years, of $2,000. Another one hundred students will receive an annual amount, for four years, of up to $25,000. One additional year of scholarship is available to those students entered in a five year engineering program. While the scholarships will be renewable, the eligibility is contingent on academic performance and maintaining study in approved majors.
