Shred Nations and Record Nations are Colorado based companies dedicated to promoting economic success of businesses in the shredding and secure destruction or management industries. As a member of i-SIGMA, Shred Nations and Record Nations recognizes the benefits of continuing higher education for those individuals interested in business, environmental responsibility and making future contributions to the community.

The scholarship award may be divided into two separate payments to be paid directly to the applicant's chosen institution of higher education, which must be an accredited university, college or trade school.
