Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash has announced its new Our Family 2023 Scholarship Program.
Developed in 1904, Our Family is the flagship private label brand distributed by SpartanNash, and fans of the brand who live in one of the states served by the company are eligible to apply for a financial award for undergraduate, graduate or vocational education.
“Rooted in the neighborhoods we serve, we are proud to recognize student leaders who are inspiring community engagement through volunteering or other acts of kindness,” said Amy McClellan, SVP and chief marketing officer.
“Supporting students in their academic journey while recognizing community contributions is perfectly aligned with our mission to deliver the ingredients for a better life.”
Interested applicants can apply online for one of the $2,000 scholarships between May 1-Aug. 31. Winners will be chosen based on multiple short essays showcasing community engagement through extracurricular activities, charity work or other good deeds. All 25 recipients will be announced on Nov. 1.
Scholarships may be used toward higher education, including two- and four-year universities, trade schools or secondary education programs.
“Our Family shares in our purpose-driven mission to support communities across the country in becoming better places to live, play and grow,” said Jason Nilssen, independent grocery store owner and Our Family retailer.
“This scholarship is an amazing opportunity to uplift people who share those same values and are working hard to serve their communities in meaningful ways.”
