Home Market Foods Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: July 2, 2024 4:00 pm CT

Home Market Foods has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships 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 Home Market Foods Scholarship Program must:

  • Dependent* children of full-time employees who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are children who qualify for benefits provided by the company.
  • Students who are enrolled or who plan to enroll in full-time or part-time (2 credits) undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or trade school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of Associate Directors and above are ineligible to apply.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award.  Up to five (5) 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. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, continued employment of the student’s parent at Home Market Foods, and continuation of the program by Home Market Foods.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Applicants will be notified in August.

Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. If not selected as a recipient, students may reapply for the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Home Market Foods. Payments are made in early September.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Honors
  • Work experience
  • A statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, will be considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Home Market Foods play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

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.

    NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than July 8, 2024 4:00 pm Central Time.

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