The Horace Mann Scholarship application
Student Scholarship Program
Horace Mann is dedicated to serving the needs of the educational community.
This year, The Horace Mann Companies is offering $50,000 in scholarships to assist children of public and private school employees to attend college.
The scholarship deadline is March 15, 2005. On or about April 15, 2005, The Horace Mann Companies will announce the names of our new Horace Mann Scholars. One of the Horace Mann Scholars will receive $15,000 in scholarship funds payable over four years, and one other scholar will receive $10,000 in scholarship funds payable over four years. Ten additional scholars in 10 designated counties will each receive one time $2,500 awards.
The 10 designated counties are:
a.. Clark County (NV)
b.. Davidson County (TN)
c.. Denton County (TX)
d.. Franklin County (OH)
e.. Hartford County (CT)
a.. Lake County (IL)

Scholarship money will be paid directly to each student's college or
university for tuition, fees and other educational expenses.
After the program closes on March 15, 2005, semifinalists will be randomly selected. After confirmation that the semifinalist applicants have met all eligibility requirements, the judges (panel of educators) will select the first and second place awards, and the 10 $2,500 awards.
Scholarship applicants will be judged based on a written essay. Financial need is not a consideration, but applicants who have all educational expenses paid through other scholarships and/or grants are ineligible
