Goya Foods has established a scholarship program to assist children of Goya employees, brokers, and independent drivers who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university of the student’s choice. The Goya Scholarship Program considers undergraduate students of all class levels, not just incoming freshmen.
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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Goya Foods Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to four (4) awards will be granted.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, for a maximum scholarship award of $20,000. Renewal is contingent upon continued adherence to eligibility requirements and continuation of the program by Goya Foods.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal.
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, is also considered. Financial need must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Goya Foods play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Goya Foods. Payment is made in August.
