Scholarship Philosophy

The Kentucky Grocers and Convenience Store association has a strong interest in supporting education and has established this scholarship program to achieve the objectives listed below:

  • It helps deserving students with college expenses.
  • It relieves parents of some college expenses.
  • Colleges attended by the recipients benefit indirectly by receiving the scholarship funds.

Scholarship Eligibility
Those eligible to apply are high school seniors, college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors.

  • Students themselves, children or grandchildren of full-time employees of firms who are members of KGCSA.
  • Part-time student employees of firms which are members of KGCSA. The student employees must have been employed for at least one year as of January 1st of the year in which the scholarships are awarded.
  • Scholarship recipients MUST be affiliated with a KGCSA member company in good standing - current year member dues MUST be paid.

Scholarship Awards
The KGEF awards five (5) $1,000 scholarships. Additional scholarships are awarded through the KGEF "Piggyback" program. Under the "Piggyback" program, KGCSA member companies fund scholarships in varying amounts that will be awarded only to students affiliated with the sponsoring company. Piggyback applicants compete only with other students of the sponsoring company. If a Piggyback applicant does not receive a sponsored Piggyback scholarship, they remain eligible to receive a KGEF scholarship. In any case, only one scholarship will be awarded to any student.

Scholarships may be used at any accredited college or university in the United States. Recipients may transfer from one college to another and retain the award.

For Employers: Fund Your Own KGEF "Piggyback" Scholarship
The KGEF "Piggyback" scholarship program allows you the ability to fund a college scholarship in the name of your company or a special person in your life and leave all the administration of the selection process to an outside independent judging organization.
