The Jack Hume Scholarship Fund has been developed to encourage the children of Basic American Foods employees to continue their education beyond high school and to assist employees in meeting the financial challenge of providing this level of education.
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.
