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:
**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.
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.
All applicants will be notified late May.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Performance Food Group. Payment is made in early August.
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.
