**For ISEA Members Only

Each year, ISEA awards the Lincoln C. Bailey Memorial Scholarship to a college student who is the son or daughter of a member company employee.  This is an unrestricted $2,500 grant, for a student entering the junior or senior year at an accredited four-year college or university.  It’s a benefit to your company through your ISEA membership, and we strongly urge you to participate.

About the Lincoln C. Bailey Memorial Scholarship

The Lincoln C. Bailey Memorial Scholarship was established in 1989 by ISEA to honor the memory of Mr. Bailey, a leader of the industry, who passed away December 30, 1988. The purpose of the Scholarship is to recognize and financially assist talented young people in achieving their fullest potential. ISEA believes this Scholarship Program exemplifies the spirit of concern and interest in education demonstrated over the years by Lincoln C. Bailey.

The Scholarship provides $2,500 each year to a deserving full-time student who is entering his or her junior year or senior year at an accredited college or university in the United States.

The scholarship recipient is selected by an independent panel, not affiliated with any member of the ISEA staff or a member company.  Member companies can download application forms, information and selection criteria from the links below in the “Scholarship Resources” section.
