For the fourth consecutive year, Meijer team members and their children will have a chance to receive up to $10,000 to further their college education with the Fred & Lena Meijer Scholarship, a competitive scholarship administered by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.
Last year, the program awarded $442,500 in scholarships, furthering the educations of 171 Meijer team members and their children. Within that group, two recipients were awarded $10,000 scholarships and 169 others received $2,500 scholarships.
The Fred & Lena Meijer Scholarship is awarded by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation based on financial need, academics, and community involvement. A written essay of aspirations and educational goals is also part of the application process.
