Aramark Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Aramark Scholarship Program has been established to recognize our employees with an investment in the future of our children.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Aramark Scholarship Program must:

  • Applicants must be sons or daughters, age 26 or younger, of full-time employees of Aramark United States, Puerto Rico, or Virgin Islands operations who have completed one (1) year of employment with the company by the application deadline. However, children of employees who are Band 5 and above, are ineligible for the program. Termination of employment up to the date of scholarship distribution will invalidate eligibility.
  • Applicants must be high school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are presently enrolled in a full-time course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the United States, Puerto Rico, or Virgin Islands for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award for educational expenses of one (1) year of full-time study at any accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.

Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued parental employment with Aramark at the time each award check is mailed, and continuation of the program by Aramark. However, children of employees who are Band 5 and above, are ineligible for the program. Termination of employment up to the date of scholarship distribution will invalidate eligibility.

Awards are to be used for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is considered. If students rank close, the award will be granted to the student who demonstrates the greater financial need.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Aramark play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Aramark. Payments are made in early August.
