In 2012, Terry Craig, vice president of human resources at Simonton Windows, noted, "We're exceptionally proud to help the children of our employees further their education with these scholarships. A wonderful aspect of this scholarship program is that dependents of Simonton employees may reapply for scholarships throughout their entire time of post-high school studies. This means that if a student previously applied and did not receive a scholarship, or if they received a scholarship in the past and still need financial assistance, they can continue to reapply for consideration each year."
Eligible applicants include those dependents of Simonton employees who have graduated or will be graduating from high school (or the equivalent) and desire to attend a college, university, technical or trade school, vocational school or business school. Additionally, students who are currently enrolled in undergraduate studies may apply.
