The Alabama Grocers Association (AGA) established the Alabama Grocers Education Foundation Scholarship Program for a number of important reasons.

First, it recognizes and aids deserving students who are related to Alabama’s food industry by virtue of their parents’ employment or their own part-time employment by firms which are members of the Alabama Grocers Association.

Second, the program demonstrates the association’s interest in the growth and development of the leaders of tomorrow by providing financial assistance to deserving students.

Third, the program relieves the parents of scholarship recipients of some college expenses.

Fourth, the program indirectly aids the colleges attended by the recipients of AGA Scholarships.
