Beyond Voya Foundation’s ongoing giving priorities in STEM and financial literacy, we place a focus on supporting students attending institutes of higher education through the Voya Scholars program.

Voya Scholars is our higher education scholarship and career readiness program. Anyone who has received a scholarship through Voya and its charitable programs is considered a Voya Scholar. Additional scholarship opportunities may be provided to students who have completed Voya Foundation programming without a scholarship component. 

Upon receipt of a scholarship, scholars become eligible for a variety of opportunities provided by Voya Financial and its employees. Opportunities include:

  • Networking
  • Mentorship
  • Resume help and interview prep
  • Internship and hiring opportunities as available

Voya Scholars accepts applications from students who have previously participated in a Voya Financial or Voya Foundation charitable program, or were taught by Teachers of the Year. Five winners will be selected to receive scholarships of $10,000 each. The 2021 application will open in December. Eligibility information and application can be found here (opens new window).

Congratulations to the 2020 class of Voya Scholars
