To support employees of IDDBA-member companies,
IDDBA is offering academic scholarships. Awards from $100 to $1,000
per semester are available to graduating high school seniors and current or
returning college or vocational/technical school students. Because
funds are budgeted annually, available dollars may be prorated among
eligible applicants. If financial resources run low, priority will
be given to supermarket dairy, deli, and bakery employees.
Scholarship applicants are required to:
- Be a current (during the college school year) full- or
part-time employee of an IDDBA-member company. You must work a minimum of 13 hours per week during the school year for an IDDBA-member company to be eligible for an IDDBA scholarship. To verify your company's membership, check
if your company appears in the list of current IDDBA
