Grocery Outlet Inc. is pleased to sponsor a scholarship program providing financial assistance to qualified children of employees and children of independent operators who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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.

Applicants to the Grocery Outlet Inc. Scholarship Program will be divided into two groups:
The number of recipients in each category will be in direct proportion to the number of applicants.
If selected as a recipient while still in high school (grades 9 – 11), the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $2,500. The award will be “set aside” until high school graduation and enrollment in postsecondary study.
If selected as a recipient as a high school senior or undergraduate, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. The award will be payable to the postsecondary school for the student in the upcoming academic year. Award amounts will not exceed the total amount of estimated school expenses.
A $2,500 scholarship will be given in memory of a child of an independent operator.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
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.
Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Recipients who do not show financial need or whose parents choose not to supply the requested financial information will be eligible to receive a minimum award only.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Grocery Outlet Inc. 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.
All applicants will be notified in June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Grocery Outlet Inc. Payment is made in August.
