For several years, Scorpion Cares has contributed to local charities, and even provided financial assistance for clients, their families, and Scorpion employees during times of extreme difficulty.
In 2021, the program was expanded to provide scholarships to deserving students to help support their education in pursuit of careers in business and technology. And today, Scorpion announced the launch of its second year of scholarships by officially inviting all qualified students to apply.

Beginning on March 15, 2022 all eligible students interested in applying for one of these scholarships, should submit their application here. The deadline for all submitted applications is April 12, 2022. Scholarship America will notify all applicants by mid-June whether or not they were awarded a scholarship.
