FAQs for the 2019-2020 Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Program

 

 

Why was the Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Program created?

The purpose of the Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship Program is to identify eligible undergraduate and graduate college students who are descendants of a participating Honeywell Retiree Club of Arizona member and award them money to help reduce their costs for a college education.

 

Who provides the funding for these scholarships?

The Scholarship Program is a joint program by Honeywell International (HON) and participating Honeywell Retiree Clubs of Arizona and their members to encourage learning and education by providing financial assistance to college students who are descendants of active or deceased Club members.

 

The source of the funds for these scholarships is shared between the participating Retiree Clubs of Arizona and Honeywell International as follows:

·       Honeywell Retiree Social Club of Arizona:   $1,500

·       Garrett Retirees’ Club:  $1,500

·       Honeywell International:  $3,000

·       Individual contributions made through the 501(c)(3) charitable contributions option

 

What are the award levels for the scholarships?

Generally, awards will be made in the range of $500 to $3,000 per recipient.  The Scholarship Foundation Board may modify the award amounts based on funds that are available.

 

            For the 2019-2020 academic year, we are targeting $1,000 scholarships.

 

How many scholarships are given each year?

The number of scholarships awarded each year is dependent on how many students apply and the level of funding.

 

While our target award is $1,000, we have been fortunate to have funds that allowed us to award $1,100 to $1,200 to 12 recipients for 2018-2019. In 2017 we had 12 recipients awarded $1,100 each and for 2016-2017 we awarded $1,800 to five recipients.

 

The program began in 2002 and as of July 2018 we have awarded over $63,000.

 

Who is eligible for the Honeywell Retiree Clubs Scholarship?

  1. The student must be a legal descendant of an active or deceased member of a participating Honeywell Retiree Club of Arizona.  (A deceased Retiree Club member is defined as a member who passed away while holding active membership in one of the participating clubs.)

 

  1. The student should have attained a 3.0 or better Grade Point Average (GPA).

While it is the intent of the Scholarship Foundation to ensure awards are provided to students who are serious about studying and graduating, the Scholarship Foundation Board has the flexibility to consider other factors when reviewing grade point average for awards.

 

  1. The student must be entering the second semester freshman year, a sophomore, a junior, a senior, or in a graduate course of study.

 

NOTE: Enrolled freshman may apply during the second freshman semester for their sophomore year, providing they attain a 3.0 GPA or greater in their first semester. Second semester GPA will also be considered for the award.

 

  1. Students may be enrolled in any field of study, although preference may be given to a student who is enrolled in a technical field, in the event two or more applicants qualify for the same scholarship award.

 

  1. Candidates must re-apply annually

 

How do you define “Retiree Club Membership?”

As part of the applicant review process, the Scholarship Board will confirm that the applicant’s listed relative is an active or deceased member of a participating Honeywell Retiree Club of Arizona.

 

Active membership is defined as membership as of December 1 of the year the scholarship application process begins. (Example:  for the 2019-2020 program year, active membership must be in place by December 1, 2018.) A deceased Retiree Club member is defined as a member who passed away while holding active membership in one of the participating clubs.

 

Who qualifies as a legal descendant of a Honeywell Retiree Club?

The Scholarship Foundation defines a legal descendant as the child or grandchild of a Retiree Club member.  This can include a biological child (or biological grandchild), a legally adopted child (or legally adopted grandchild) or stepchild (or step grandchild). 

 

At this point in time, spouses of a retiree’s child or grandchild are not eligible for a scholarship.

 

Is there a grade point average required for those applying?

Yes.  The student should have attained a 3.0 or better Grade Point Average (GPA).

 

While it is the intent of the Scholarship Foundation to ensure awards are provided to students who are serious about studying and graduating, the Scholarship Foundation Board has the flexibility to consider other factors when reviewing grade point average for awards.

 

Can a high school senior apply for a scholarship for their Freshman year?

            No.  The student must:

·      be entering the second semester freshman year

(NOTE: Enrolled freshman may apply during the second freshman semester for their sophomore year, providing they attain a 3.0 GPA or greater in their first semester. Second semester GPA will be considered for the award.)

·      a sophomore,

·      a junior,

·      a senior, or

·      in a graduate course of study.
