Blount Fine Foods has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children and grandchildren who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Blount Fine Foods Scholarship Program must be:
Children and grandchildren of owners are ineligible to apply.
Awards of $10,000 will be granted to up to two (2) or the top ranking applicants with a 3.0 GPA or higher. Up to 48 awards of $1,000 will also be granted. Award amounts may vary based on number of applicants received.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Their parent, grandparent or guardian must be actively employed at the time of application and award.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.
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 educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Blount Fine Foods play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
