Scholarships are investments in employees

We encourage staff members at our locations across the country and at our national headquarters to pursue opportunities in higher education.

  • Good Samaritan Society Local Scholarships: Through the generosity of donors, a Good Samaritan Society location may have endowments or funds available to award scholarships to employees enrolled in post-secondary education. Employees interested in a local scholarship should speak with their administrator about what opportunities may be available for employees of that location. Locally restricted scholarship funds are awarded by a local committee in accordance with the restrictions required by that scholarship program.
