Hannaford Charitable Foundation Scholarship ProgramEligibility: Currently employed full-time or part-time associates of Hannaford or dependent children* of associates with a minimum of six months continuous service as of the application deadline date, and who are high school seniors or graduates planning to enroll, or students already enrolled in a full-time course of study leading to a baccalaureate or master's degree at an accredited college or university, an associate's degree at a junior or community college, or a certificate at an approved vocational technical institute.
*Child is defined as the son, daughter, stepson, stepdaughter, legally adopted child or legal ward supported principally by the associate.
Scholarship Amount: Awards are between $2,000 to $5,000 and are not renewable, but students may reapply each year if eligible. Awards are for undergraduate study or graduate study leading to a master's degree.
How is this Awarded: Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals, an outside appraisal, and financial need. Financial need as calculated by Scholarship America must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. All other criteria being equal, preference will be given first to associates, then to their children. Although Hannaford establishes the criteria, selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of Hannaford or the Charitable Foundation play a part in the selection. Applicants will be notified in early May whether or not they have been selected to receive an award. Scholarship awards will be made in two equal installments, on August 15 and December 30, mailed to each recipient's home address, and made payable jointly to the student and the school, and must be endorsed by both.
