The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program

Posted by Elizabeth on January 9, 2012 in National Scholarship

You are making a difference. In your classroom and in your community. If you have the passion to succeed — especially in fields of study important to the automotive and related industries — the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program is looking for you. This year, we will award 1,100 scholarships, including 100 renewable scholarships of up to $25,000 per year.

It starts with good grades. But goes beyond.

A dedicated student. A leader in school. A volunteer worker. A college-bound and community-minded individual.

The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program wants to reward students who have succeeded both inside and outside of the classroom — and who may not be able to attend college without financial assistance. It’s a reward for what you’ve made of yourself and the difference you are making for others.

Applications due February 29, 2012
