For the fourth consecutive year, Mi Pueblo is seeking applicants for its scholarship program, through which the San Jose, Calif.-based grocer will award $200,000 to those looking to further their education.
Through April 30, qualified applicants can apply online for one of the 100 scholarships being granted as part of the program. Those who wish to be considered must be graduating high school seniors with a minimum 2.7 cumulative GPA, residents of a Mi Pueblo county, and demonstrate community involvement as well as financial need. Current full- and part-time Mi Pueblo employees in good standing will also be eligible.
“Many of Mi Pueblo’s customers and employees came to the United States in search of a better life for themselves and their families," said Javier Ramirez, president and CEO of Mi Pueblo. "At Mi Pueblo, we recognize that education is the first step towards achieving this goal. We are thrilled to once again offer the community and our valued employees an opportunity to better prepare themselves for the future and fulfill their dreams.”
Since 2011, the Hispanic grocery chain has awarded more than $550,000 in scholarship monies to more than 350 individuals in the Bay Area, Central Coast and Central Valley regions.
