The Nestlé USA College Scholarship Foundation is proud to sponsor a scholarship program to assist children of employees of Nestlé USA to pursue higher education. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at any accredited institution of the student’s choice.
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.

Information provided in response to the gender and ethnicity questions on the profile page is voluntary. That information is for statistics reporting only and will not be shared with the selection committee.
