The corporate giant hands out a boatload of scholarships to employees and their dependents, but also gives college cash to students who are pillars of their community. Unlike other scholarships, this award is not based solely on grades. The minimum GPA requirement is 2.5, but candidates will also be evaluated on their financial need, ACT or SAT scores, community activities, and leadership.
