The deadline to apply for scholarships has passed. Please check back for results announcements!
Our Team Pelican Scholarship Award Program has awarded over $80,000 in 12 years to high school graduates across Louisiana.
How will awards be distributed?
A volunteer committee made up of Pelican employees scores the scholarship applications based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, leadership, and community service. Each scholarship award will be in the amount of $1,000:
- Parish Awards (11): One scholarship will be awarded per parish where a Pelican branch is located. If you don't attend school in one of the 11 parishes, you will be grouped with the nearest parish based on your school's address.
- Out-of-State Award (1): One scholarship will be awarded to a student living outside of Louisiana, if applicable.
- Internal Award (1): One scholarship will be awarded to the immediate family member of a Pelican employee. All internal applicants will be grouped together and not eligible for a parish award or any additional award.
We also offer two special awards designed to benefit students who have excelled in specific areas outside of their scholastic record:
- Heart for Service Award (1): Having a "Heart for Service" is at the core of everything we do at Pelican! This special award will be granted to a student who exhibited outstanding service and dedication to their community.
- Pelican Perseverance Award (1): Pelican knows that bad things happen to good people, and we're here to help. This special award will be granted to a student who exhibited strength and commitment to overcome adversity and challenges in their life.
That's a total of $15,000 in scholarship awards in 2020!
