Forty students awarded scholarships from Schwan's Corporate Giving Foundation

May 26, 2017 — The Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation recently awarded 40 students a higher-education scholarship to attend an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational technical school through the Schwan Scholarship Program. Thirty-seven students were awarded a renewable scholarship of $2,500 and three students were awarded a $1,000 one-time honorarium. Recipients awarded scholarships came from 18 states.

Scholarship recipients were notified the week May 8. Applicants who did not receive a scholarship this year are encouraged to apply again when the program opens once again in early January 2018.

The Schwan Scholarship Program provides scholarships for children of our company’s full-time employees. The program is meant to reflect the foundation’s values, and it encourages young people to achieve academically.

The program is run by Scholarship America®, which also selects the recipients. No officer or employee of our company or Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation was involved in selecting the scholarship recipients.

Schwan’s Corporate Giving Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) charitable organization focused on efforts to end hunger, promote youth education and leadership development, and provide essential services that advance the health of the communities where our employees live and work. The foundation is headquartered in Marshall, Minnesota.
