WinnCompanies, an award-winning multifamily development and management company, established the WinningEdge Scholarship in 2012 for qualifying residents of their managed communities, to demonstrate WinnCompanies’ commitment to improving the communities where they live and work, and to improve the quality of life for the people they serve. In 2018, an additional WinningEdge Scholarship program was created for children and dependents of WinnCompanies team members. In total over $390,000 in scholarship funds have been awarded since the initial program’s inception.
The WinningEdge scholarship program is a competitive process. Submission requirements include a 400-word personal statement, resume, Student Aid report, a completed Reference Request and copy of school transcripts. Applicants are evaluated based on performance and financial need. A volunteer committee of WinnCompanies employees evaluates all applications on a “blinded” basis – meaning that all personal or identifying information about an applicant is redacted before their application is evaluated.
