Scholarship Fund Program
The RJS Family Foundation has established the Peoples Services, Inc. Scholarship Fund Program. It is a competitive merit- and need-based scholarship program designed to help eligible employees pay for the tuition expense of accredited post-secondary education for their dependent children. To be eligible, active employees must have worked full-time (defined as a minimum of forty (40) hours per week or more) for at least one year for Peoples Services, Inc. or any of its subsidiaries.
Scholarship participants will be selected on the basis of their financial need, academic record, demonstrated leadership, and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experiences, and essays on their educational and career goals. Up to four awards—one $10,000 and three $5,000—will be granted annually. These scholarship awards can be used at any eligible accredited educational institution, such as a college, university, vocational school, or program.
In no instance does any employee, or a relation of an employee, of Peoples Services, Inc. or its subsidiaries or a Sibila family member play a part in the selection process for the award of the scholarships to eliminate any bias. Applications can be made between December 1 and March 31 of each year.
This program should not be confused with the Educational Assistance Program available to our employees for their own continuing education.
