Peter J. McGrail
Scholarship Program

In honor of our late CFO, Peter J. McGrail, Paylocity has established a scholarship program.

In keeping with Peter’s passion for learning, this program will help the children of our Paylocity staff members offset some of the cost of college, advancing education among the next generation. The Peter J. McGrail Scholarship is open to dependent children of employees who have completed at least two years of continuous service with Paylocity. Annual applications are due in February, with awards announced each spring.

What are the scholarship eligibility requirements?

Applicant must be 17–26 years of age as of the application deadline

Applicant must be an unmarried, dependent child/stepchild of a current Paylocity employee

Peter J. McGrail Scholarship Awards

New awards will be determined annually each Spring. Awards are not automatically renewable, but students can apply each year if they meet eligibility criteria. The 2018 awards are worth $2,500 per each selected student.
