MADISON, WI — In honor of company founder Gordon Flesch, the Gordon J. Flesch Scholarship Program has awarded 20 scholarships to dependent children of company employees. The Gordon Flesch Company began awarding scholarships to the children of associates in 1995, and has provided up to 20 scholarships annually, distributing more than $1.8 million through the program.
Unlike similar programs, the Gordon J. Flesch Scholarship Program is administered by a third-party organization which reviews applications and selects winners based solely on the merits of the application. This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals.
The program is available to the children of Gordon Flesch Company associates who have been with the company for one year or more and will be attending an accredited two or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school (undergraduate only). Applicants are evaluated on both academic performance and non-academic activities such as organizational involvement and leadership roles.
In 2022, 20 recipients were selected for awards with six of the company’s primary branch offices represented. “All of our GFC Scholarship recipients demonstrate great potential in leading the next generation,” says Brad Olm, Vice President of Shared Services with the Gordon Flesch Company. “I’m proud that we can continue to honor Gordon Flesch’s legacy and once again help support another group of dedicated and talented learners.”
Up to twenty $4,000 scholarships will be awarded each year. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
