Here at Pompeian, we know it only takes a small seed to grow something great. We’re The Olive Oil People, and we believe flourishing minds should be cultivated so that they can spring up, branch out and make a difference.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce The Pompeian Family Scholarship Program, an initiative that can act as a small stepping-stone in the pursuit of personal enrichment and growth. Our mission of helping people eat and live well extends to our family of farmers and craftsmen and their families. For our team, whether you’re interested in enriching your own education or want to build a brighter tomorrow for your children or grandchildren, The Pompeian Family Scholarship Program can be instrumental in forging a path to greater success and personal fulfillment.
The Pompeian Family Scholarship Program is available to all Pompeian Group employees and children and grandchildren of employees looking to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
The 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.
