About NHFIEF Scholarship Program

 

 

Philosophy

The New Hampshire Food Industries Education Foundation (NHFIEF) Scholarship Program was established to achieve a number of highly desirable objectives. It helps students with college expenses. It relieves parents of college expenses. It reduces the amount students must work for or borrow in financing an education and it indirectly assists the colleges attended by the winners.

 

Eligibility

Those eligible to apply are high school seniors, college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. These students must be dependent children of full-time employees of firms that are members of New Hampshire Grocers Association (NHGA) or part-time employees at a New Hampshire location of a NHGA members. The member firm which employment takes place at must be located in New Hampshire (although the student may live in another state). A parent/employee must have been employed for at least one year as of January 1 of the year in which the scholarships are awarded. Part-time employees must have been employed for at least six months as of January 1 of the year in which the scholarships are awarded. Parent/employees and part-time employees must still be employed by an NHGA member firm when the scholarship winners are announced.

 

Scholarship Awards

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, and vocational or technical school in the United States. A student may transfer from one college to another and retain the award.

 

Winner Selection

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 scholastic activities. All applicants will be notified of results of the competition in May. An independent Selection Committee of educators is responsible and choosing the winners.

 

Responsibilities of Recipient

Recipient responsibilities include enrolling as full-time undergraduates in the fall of the year in which the scholarships are awarded and continuing in school for the entire academic year without interruption, barring illness, emergency, or military service. Scholarship recipients are responsible for making certain that their scholarship checks are delivered to the proper office at their college or university.

 

Payment of Funds

Checks will be mailed to each recipient’s home address and will be made payable to the college or university only. For students on the semester system, checks will be issued in August and December. For students on the quarter system, checks will be issued in August, November, and February.

 

Program Administration

To assure complete impartiality in the selection of the winner and to maintain a high level of professionalism, the scholarships are determined by a firm that specializes in managing sponsored scholarship programs.
