PFG Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Performance Food Group has established a scholarship program to assist children of associates who plan to continue their education in college or vocational-technical 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 PFG Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time Performance Food Group associates who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural or legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the associate’s household or primarily supported by the associate.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school** for the entire upcoming academic year.

**Certification programs must be through an accredited institution and must run on a standard academic semester calendar. Certification programs must be a minimum of one semester/term in length. 

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Multiple awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Associate division will be considered in distribution of awards.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified late May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Performance Food Group. Payment is made in early August.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or associate of Performance Food Group play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. 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.
  • A copy of the first 2 pages of your parent(s)/legal guardian(s) most recently filed 1040.

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 March 31, 2022 3:00 pm CT.
