The General Mills Foundation Post-High School Scholarship Program is a key element of the Foundation’s effort to encourage higher education. It was established to assist sons and daughters of General Mills and subsidiary employees in obtaining a postsecondary education.
The General Mills Foundation Post-High School Scholarship Program supports any form of accredited postsecondary education. Under this program, students may pursue trade or professional programs (such as those offered by qualified vocational-technical schools), as well as traditional curricula offered by colleges and universities.
The General Mills Foundation Post-High School Scholarship 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.
Applicants to the General Mills Foundation Post High School Scholarship Program must be:
Awards are for undergraduate study only. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, disability, national origin or any other legally prohibited factor.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $500 to $2,500.
The number of years of renewal is based on the year of the initial awards. Renewal is based on maintaining satisfactory academic performance in a full-time undergraduate program.
The maximum number of times a student may receive funds will be directly related to the year in school when the student receives the initial award. A student entering as a Freshman may receive an award four (4) times; as a Sophomore, three (3) times; as a Junior, two (2) times; and as a Senior, one (1) time.
Award recipients and non-recipients will be notified in late-March.
