Alliance Is Investing In the Future

Thursday, August 14, 2014

 

Alliance believes that higher education increases the chance for success in life. To help Alliance Members and their children, Alliance started the Scholarship Program in 1996 to help turn the dream of college into a reality. Alliance recently honored 103 exceptional students from across the U.S. with $130,000 in awards for the 2014 program year. This pushes the total scholarships awarded since the program's inception to over $2.5 million supporting more than 1,700 students.

The selection of recipients is based upon their grade point average and SAT/ACT scores. Alliance scholarship winner Jaimie D. of Kansas had this to say about the program, "It is such an encouragement to have received the financial blessing of a scholarship to help me accomplish my dreams and goals!"

The scholarship program, open to both Alliance Members and their dependents ages 16-28, presents a $2,000 award to first time recipients pursuing their undergraduate degree. Recognizing that a college degree takes a number of years to achieve, Alliance also offers $1,000 renewal scholarships for up to three consecutive years as long as the student maintains at least a 3.5 grade point average.

The Alliance for Affordable Services is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping members live better and save more. The Alliance uses the power of the group to negotiate significant savings on a variety of business, lifestyle, and health related benefits for tens of thousands of members nationwide. Scholarship applications for the 2015 award year may be submitted after January 1.
