Ross Stores, Inc. established the Stuart Moldaw Scholarship in 2009 to honor Stuart G. Moldaw – Ross’ founder and Chairman Emeritus – for his lifelong commitment to education. The Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance to Associates and their dependents who plan to continue their education in college, graduate school, or vocational-technical school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time or part-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice. If selected, recipients can apply to renew their scholarships each year for three additional years.
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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, disability, or national origin.
