Cutco Sons and Daughters Scholarships
Investing in youth is the key to our future, which is why the company continues to give annual Cutco
Sons and Daughters Scholarships. Each year the Cutco Scholarship Committee chooses winners from area
high school students who are children of employees of Cutco Corp., Cutco Cutlery, Ka-Bar, Schilling Forge
and Vector Marketing.
This year, and in years to come, four deserving students will receive a four-year scholarship of
$8,000 each toward their college education.
