SpartanNash Invests in Higher Education with Launch of Our Family Scholarship Program

Late last week SpartanNash announced its new Our Family 2023 Scholarship Program to support students making a positive difference in their communities. Developed in 1904, Our Family is the retailer’s flagship Retail-owned Brand. Fans of the brand who live in one of the states the company serves are eligible to apply for a financial award for undergraduate, graduate, or vocational education.

“Rooted in the neighborhoods we serve, we are proud to recognize student leaders who are inspiring community engagement through volunteering or other acts of kindness,” said SpartanNash Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Amy McClellan.  “Supporting students in their academic journey while recognizing community contributions is perfectly aligned with our mission to deliver the ingredients for a better life.”

Interested applicants can apply online for one of the $2,000 scholarships between May 1 and Aug. 31, 2023. Winners will be chosen based on multiple short essays showcasing community engagement through extracurricular activities, charity work, or other good deeds. All 25 recipients will be announced on November 1, 2023. Scholarships may be used toward higher education, including two- and four-year universities, trade schools, or secondary education programs.

“Our Family shares in our purpose-driven mission to support communities across the country in becoming better places to live, play and grow,” said independent grocery store owner and Our Family retailer Jason Nilssen. “This scholarship is an amazing opportunity to uplift people who share those same values and are working hard to serve their communities in meaningful ways.”
