For the past two decades, GEICO has given out $1,000 achievement awards each year to college sophomores and juniors from all across the country. In 2014, we will recognize more than 50 students! This award program is just one of the ways that we help support tomorrow’s leaders. It’s a long-standing tradition that, quite simply, makes us happier than a camel on hump day.
So, who’s eligible for one of these awards? Well, you could be, if you:
- Are currently enrolled full-time in a bachelor’s degree program
- Possess sophomore or junior status
- Have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA
- Are majoring in business, computer science, mathematics or a related program
- Have demonstrated leadership on campus and/or within the community
How to apply
First, we encourage you to learn more about our program at geico.jobs/achievement. There, you can download an application and watch a quick video. We require a few documents – resume, short essay and unofficial transcripts – so start getting those ready after your 5 p.m. group project meeting.
There’s a list of participating schools posted online, but please note that students from any accredited four-year college or university are eligible to apply. This year’s recipients will be selected later this spring and notified in June 2014.
Don’t delay! Postmark deadline is Feb. 22.
We look forward to receiving your application. Mailing addresses are based upon school and posted online, too.
