Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger Scholarships

Scholarship Sponsored by Sodexo Foundation

Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 5

Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation works to ensure that every child in the U.S., especially those most at risk, grows up with dependable access to enough nutritious food to enable them to lead healthy, productive lives. As part of its commitment, Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation wants to engage and reward students who have made a significant impact against hunger and are driving awareness and mobilizing youth to be catalysts for innovative models and solutions to eliminate childhood hunger.

The Foundation is looking for students who are using their creativity, academic studies (like STEM), and organizational skills to help fight hunger in their communities. The Foundation would like to learn about the communities scholars serve and how they engage others in these efforts.

In addition to the scholarship and grant awards, top National winners will attend a three-day all-expenses-paid networking and recognition event where they will meet top global and national food, beverage, supplies, equipment and facilities management companies who support the Stop Hunger mission. More details are below.
