The Gygi and von Wyss Scholarship Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for the qualified children of eligible employees of LafargeHolcim and its family of companies whether operating under the name Lafarge, Holcim, Aggregate Industries or Lattimore Materials and their wholly-owned subsidiaries.


We believe the scholarship program is an investment in the future and one of the exceptional benefits offered to our employees. Including awards to the 2022 scholarship recipients and to past recipients, the Foundation will disburse approximately $184,000 next year to support the children of our employees in their academic endeavors.

In 2022, a maximum of eight scholarship recipients will receive up to $24,000 towards a four-year college program, with $6,000 provided per year, $3,000 per semester. The scholarship award can be used towards tuition, fees, and books. Students are required to have a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize your child’s academic excellence and to supplement college expenses.

The program is now open to all students attending college Fall of 2022 pursuing a 4-year degree program, not just graduating High School Seniors! Click here to view the digital application form.
