55 Students Benefit from Hilmar Cheese Company, Inc. Scholarships
HILMAR, CA. April 7, 2022. Fifty-five students demonstrating community involvement and academic performance will each receive a scholarship toward their higher education through Hilmar Cheese Company’s annual scholarship program. This program helps fulfil Hilmar Cheese Company’s purpose to improve lives.
The scholarship program has four categories: children of employees of Hilmar Cheese Company, Hilmar Cheese Company Visitor Center part-time staff, children of the dairy farm families who ship milk to Hilmar Cheese Company and students with an agricultural major living in the counties where the company is located. This last category is for students not affiliated with the company; but dedicated to the agricultural industry and living in Merced or Stanislaus counties in California or Dallam or Hartley counties in Texas. This year, previous recipients of a dairy farm family child or employee child scholarship were invited to apply for a renewal scholarship. Twenty-four students received renewal scholarships.
First-time scholarship recipients include twelve children of Hilmar Cheese Company employees, four part-time visitor center employees, four children of the dairy farm families who ship their milk to Hilmar Cheese Company and eleven agricultural majors.
Renewal scholarships were awarded to twenty-four children of employees and the dairy farm families who ship their milk to Hilmar Cheese Company.
The Hilmar Cheese Company scholarship program reflects the company’s ongoing support of higher education and its commitment to employees, dairy farm families, the California and Texas agricultural industries and the communities where we operate.
Qualifying students are encouraged to apply November 1 through February 1, 2023. For more information about Hilmar Cheese Company’s scholarship program, visit the About Us section of www.hilmarcheese.com.
