New Hampshire Food Industries Education Foundation
The New Hampshire Food Industries Education Foundation was created to provide educational scholarships to students in New Hampshire’s food industry. Students who are either employed by, or have parents that are employed by members of the NH Grocers Association are eligible. These include grocery stores, convenience stores and their suppliers. Scholarships are awarded on a one year basis for students attending traditional colleges and universities as well as vocational and technical schools.
The scholarships will be one time, non-renewable awards of $1,000. The scholarships will be applied to college expenses at any accredited college, university, vocational or technical school in the United States. A student may transfer from one college to another and retain the award.
The selection of the winners will be based on a combination of the academic merit, in addition to college GPA, ACT scores, SAT scores, and extracurricular activities. An independent Selection Committee of educators is responsible and choosing the winners.
