How many applications are usually received?
Our records show that there are over 400 Vermeer employee dependents that were in the age range of typical college students and could have applied in 2011. 83 dependents started the scholarship application and 67 completed the application. This is fairly typical of the numbers from year to year – usually the number of completed applications may be a little higher. Needless to say, this is a very competitive scholarship with many qualified applicants. Please refer to the question regarding what the scholarship is based on for further details. The Vermeer Charitable Foundation is allowed by law to give scholarships to only a percentage of the applicants.
