Hershey’s Chocolate World has established a scholarship program to assist their hourly 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:
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.
All applicants will be notified in August.
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.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Hershey’s Chocolate World. Payment is made in late August.
