We are excited to announce the winners of this year’s annual college scholarship program! For the 17th consecutive year, OneBeacon has awarded scholarships to 16 high-school seniors, and now this year, we opened it up to all post-secondary students. Additionally, we increased the gift amounts to $3,000 and expanded eligibility to grandchildren. Due to broadened program, we saw about a 50% increase in scholarship applicants! Eight of these awards were given to our producers’ children, while the other eight were given to the children of OneBeacon and The Guarantee employees.
The winning recipients were selected based on criteria including their academic performance, leadership roles and participation in school, as well as community activities. The program is administered by Scholarship America®, a nonprofit scholarship program administrator, and funded by our Charitable Trust.
While some schools are still deciding when and how students will attend classes this fall semester, we’re wishing them all the best in their upcoming year.
Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship winners:
