Tops Markets LLC has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college.
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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Tops Markets Scholarship Program must:
Salaried employees and the dependents of full-time salaried employees are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.
Members and their dependents of the UFCW Local One are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Associates whose children are recipients must be employed when scholarship awards are paid each August.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate or graduate study.
All applicants will be notified in late April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Tops Markets LLC. Payment is made in mid-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 goals and aspirations, and unusual personal or family circumstances.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Tops Markets
LLC play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
