Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU) has established a scholarship program to support the advanced education of our associates’ children and grandchildren by awarding fifty (50) one-time scholarships to eligible applicants each year.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Applicants to the BBU Scholarship Program must:
Up to fifty (50) awards of $3,000 will be granted.
Provided there are qualified applicants, recipients from the U.S. and Canada will be selected in proportion to the number of applicants from each country.
The award checks will be issued in U.S. currency.
Awards may be applied to tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required for course load at accredited, nonprofit two- or four-year colleges, universities or vocational-technical schools.
Students may transfer from one institution to another and retain the award.
Awards are one-time only. Past recipients may not reapply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
In late June, applicants will be notified of whether they’ve been selected to receive a scholarship. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of BBU. Payments are made in one installment in August.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of BBU play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 1, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
