2011 Mattel Global Scholarship Program
« on: Apr 02, 2011, 04:42 PM »
The Mattel Children’s Foundation is proud to sponsor a scholarship program designed to assist and encourage children of Mattel employees worldwide to pursue higher education. Scholarships are offered for full-time study at a college, university or vocational school, in any country of the student’s choice. Mattel Children’s Foundation scholarships recognize and support the scholastic potential of students who desire an advanced education. The Foundation believes that education is an important tool in realizing individual achievements and enhancing society. This scholarship is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE), a not-for-profit organization that specializes in scholarship program administration worldwide.
