BWXT Scholarship Program Guidelines
The BWX Technologies, Inc. (BWXT) Scholarship Program is designed to provide deserving students with financial support at any accredited college, university, community college, technical college or trade school. BWXT awards four (4) four-year undergraduate scholarships each year, worth US $2,500 per year, and two (2) two-year associate, technical, certificate or diploma degree scholarships each year, worth US $1,250 per year, to eligible students who are children of eligible BWXT employees, including current Technical Services Group (TSG) Affiliated employees who work at various TSG Project sites.
The 2023 recipients attending an accredited four-year college or university will receive US $2,500 per year, renewable for up to three additional years or until completion of their first bachelor’s degree, whichever comes first. Those 2023 scholarship recipients enrolled in a two-year associate, technical, certificate or diploma program will receive US $1,250 per year, renewable for up to one additional year.
Applicants must be high school seniors and the child, stepchild or dependent of a BWXT employee who has been employed by the company for a minimum of three consecutive years as of the date of application.
Applicants must intend to pursue a bachelor’s, associate, or other two-year degree or certificate as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, community college, technical college or trade school beginning in the fall term of the year the scholarship is awarded.
This scholarship program does not provide support for post-university degrees or for non-degree/non-certificate programs.
Receipt of scholarship awards from other sources or financial aid will not disqualify applicants from receiving a BWXT Scholarship.
All scholarship applications are reviewed by a committee of BWXT employees. Preference will be given based on academic achievement, future potential and financial need.
The BWXT Scholarship Committee will evaluate each applicant’s grades, test scores, extracurricular activities, written essay submission and guidance counselor recommendations.
BWXT Scholarship recipients must execute a Scholarship Agreement before funds can be awarded. This agreement is facilitated online in the same platform as the application process. Recipients will be notified of the agreement procedure upon selection.
Recipients must also indicate their willingness to interview with the company for summer work positions, if offered, and for full-time employment, if offered. It is understood, however, that the recipient is not promised employment or obligated to accept either part-time or full-time employment as a condition of award or renewal of the scholarship.
The BWXT Scholarship Committee will include cross-organizational representation from within BWXT. The committee will review all applications received each year and select the scholarship recipients and one alternate. The committee will also review each renewal application from current recipients and confirm whether it should be renewed. In the event a member of the committee has a child for whom an application for scholarship has been submitted, an alternate shall be selected to serve on the committee during all deliberations which affect or might reasonably affect the award or renewal of a scholarship to such child.
Responsibility of Recipients
Scholarship recipients must enroll as full-time students in the fall of the year in which the scholarships are awarded and continue in school full-time for the entire academic year without interruption barring illness, emergency or military service. They also must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale, remain in good standing with their college, university, community college, technical college or trade school and submit a yearly renewal application, including current transcripts. Scholarship recipients are also responsible for informing the BWXT Scholarship Program Coordinator if they have any change in their permanent mailing address, school enrollment or academic status.
Payment of Scholarship Funds
Payment of scholarship funds will be made directly to the bursar for the applicable educational institution attended by the Scholarship recipient at the time payment is required for a semester/term. The award may be used to pay for tuition, books, lab fees, room and board or other educational expenses.
