hampton scholarship program
From Our Family to Yours
In 2017, we proudly launched an annual competitive scholarship program for immediate family members (children and spouses) of Hampton employees interested in furthering their education. While Hampton already offers job-related tuition reimbursement for employees, we’re excited to extend this opportunity to our employees’ families. Since 2017, the Hampton Scholarship program has supported 48 students in furthering their education. The scholarship, managed by Scholarship America provides awards ranging from $5,000 to $7,500 for full-time undergraduate or vocational study ($2,500-$3,750 for part-time study). Awards are renewable for up to three years or until a degree or certification is obtained. Preference will be given to students pursuing a degree or certification in trades or technical fields. For more information about the scholarship, please contact Scholarship America.
