AWMA Offers Scholarship

11/29/2002
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The American Wholesale Marketers Association/Distributors Education Foundation now has available on its Web site the Ray Foley Memorial Scholarship form for the 2003-2004 school year. Qualified applicants can get information on the scholarship program and can download the form by going to www.awmanet.org/edu/edu-schol.html.

The Ray Foley Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year to two students who are interested in pursuing a career in the convenience-product distribution business. Each scholarship is $5,000, and the money can be applied to tuition, room-and-board, books, and other school-related expenses.

Candidates must be employees of AWMA-member wholesalers or the immediate family members of employees of AWMA-member wholesalers. In addition, candidates must be enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university in a business-related major.

The deadline for completing the scholarship application is May 9. Winners will be announced in the summer of 2003. The Ray Foley Memorial Scholarship was established in 1983 in memory of the late National Candy Wholesalers Association executive vice president, Ray Foley.
