The West scholarship program was established in 1972 to honor Herman O. West, the founder of West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. Each year, the program allows the children of West’s full-time U.S. employees the opportunity to compete for a scholarship to a four-year or two-year college or technical school.

The winners were chosen by an independent selection committee that reviewed the students' ACT/SAT scores, grade point average, class rank, honors and advanced placement courses, and essay. The committee also evaluated the students' character, maturity and leadership skills to assess each student holistically.
