  • The purpose of the scholarship is to enhance the future of the grocery industry by investing in the education of young
    people who are pursuing a career in the industry, especially the independent community-focused retail and wholesale

    United States. The three major areas of food distribution are retailing, wholesaling and processing/manufacturing. The
    wide selection of challenging career opportunities offered in the grocery industry include supermarket management and
    ownership, convenience store management, advertising and public relations, computer technology, food safety, consumer
    affairs, food plant management, purchasing management, financial planning, and traffic management.

    Each year, subject to availability of funds, up to ten (10) scholarships are awarded to rising full-time juniors, seniors, or graduate students pursuing a degree in business, food management, or another relevant course of study leading to a career in the grocery industry, with preference given to the independent retail and wholesale sector.

    Scholarship awards shall be used toward the following, in order of priority: tuition and fees; books and supplies; room and board; and commuting expenses.
