Buick and GM Foundation Announce Scholarship Program



Buick and the GM Foundation announced the launch of the Buick Achievers Scholarship Program for the 2012-13 school year.  Among the largest scholarships awarded over multiple years, they expanded the program even further this year to include current undergraduate students, as well as high school seniors and graduates.

The move is intended to address high drop-out rates for students unable to complete their academic goals due to financial concerns. It also helps to identify college students who have had more time to develop interests in majors covered by the program including science, technology, engineering and design, along with other areas of expertise essential to strengthening our nation’s manufacturing workforce talent.

The Buick Achievers Scholarship Program will award:

Up to $25,000 per year for 100 students
– AND –
$2,000 one time awards for 1,000 students

We encourage students to apply who…

  • Will be enrolling full-time at a 4-year college or university.
  • Plan to major in one of the following: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Business Administration, Finance, Marketing or Design.
  • Have an interest in pursuing a career in the automotive or related industries.

Applications for the 2012 Buick Achievers Scholarship Program will be accepted online at www.buickachievers.com until February 29, 2012.
