Dot Foods proudly announces the winners of its 30th annual Dot Scholarship Award. Six recipients from four Dot distribution centers (DC) were selected from a strong pool of applicants.
The award recognizes and rewards academic accomplishment, leadership, and professional promise. Scholars will receive $500 per semester for the next four years, up to $4,000 total, for a four-year college degree.
Any high school senior with a parent employed full-time at Dot Foods or Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI) and plans to attend a four-year college this fall had the opportunity to apply for the scholarship earlier this year.
Dot Foods has provided college scholarships to area high school students since 1989. Since then, Dot has awarded scholarships to 138 individuals.
Congratulations to the 2019 Dot Scholarship recipients!
