In addition to the scholarship criteria and preferences noted, it is BlackRock’s intent that recipients possess characteristics including innovative thinking, maturity, and intellectual passion. They should be self-motivated individuals who do not follow blindly. They should be risk takers with an insatiable desire to solve big problems. Nominations will be sought based on the criteria and from the faculty and staff noted. Fall grades will be reviewed and candidate interviews conducted internally during January and February of the spring term. Student interest in developing an understanding of the financial services industry will be assessed. During March and April, Georgia Tech will present BlackRock with a portfolio of prospective recipients, not less than three and no more than four, with whom company representatives may wish to speak either by long-distance interview or on-campus interview. Georgia Tech will take feedback from those corporate interviews into consideration with the understanding that Georgia Tech will make the final recipient selections. Spring semester grades will be reviewed before the successful recipients are notified on or before June 1.

BlackRock will provide an annual expendable gift to fund two cost of attendance scholarships each year for undergraduate students with significant, demonstrated financial need who have successfully completed their first year of study with a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. The full cost of undergraduate attendance is defined as tuition, mandatory student fees, books and supplies, housing allowance, meal plan allowance, and personal educational costs, as published on the Georgia Tech Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid web site, plus a computer as necessary. In addition to the scholarship award, BlackRock will support each recipient in identifying and securing a paid internship between his or her second and third year of study. Between the third and fourth year, BlackRock will offer each recipient a paid internship within the corporation.


OSFA will research potential recipients in the fall of the students’ freshman year.
