Meijer Scholarship Program Enhanced For Meijer Team Members and Their Children

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Meijer team members and their children will have a chance to receive up to $10,000 this year to further their college education with the Fred and Lena Meijer Scholarship, a competitive scholarship administered by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.

“My brothers and I are proud to honor our parents with this new scholarship opportunity for Meijer team members and their children,” said Doug Meijer, co-chairman of the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based supercenter retail chain.

The Fred and Lena Meijer Scholarship is a private scholarship fund that was established at the Grand Rapids Community Foundation in 1975 originally for children of Meijer team members that awarded $500 scholarships. In 2010, the scholarship program was expanded to include Meijer team members and increased to $1,000 awards. The Meijer family funded the scholarship in 2011 with a significant endowment gift to the Community Foundation.
