Hershey's Chocolate World Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: July 1, 2021 3:00 pm CT

Hershey’s Chocolate World has established a scholarship program to assist their part-time Flex Force employees who plan to continue their education in college.

The 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 for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Hershey’s Chocolate World Scholarship Program must be:

  • Part-time Hershey’s Chocolate World Flex Force employees who are employed through at least early August 2021.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $500 award. Up to ten (10) awards will be granted.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in August.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Hershey’s Chocolate World 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.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Hershey’s Chocolate World. Payment is made in late August.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than July 6, 2021 3:00 pm CT.

Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
