Scholarship Award Program

NEWFDA is proud to announce its’ 26th Annual Scholarship Program! 

The NorthEast Wholesale Food Distributors Association has excellent opportunities for our member families and their dependents to benefit from the NEWFDA Scholarship Program. To date, NEWFDA has awarded over $700,000 in scholarship funds to students of NEWFDA member families, due in large part to the generosity of our members.  Events such as NEWFDA’s Annual Convention, and the Annual Golf Outing support the Scholarship Program.

For the 2016/2017 program year, we are proud to offer several scholarships to deserving students.


NEWFDA Scholarships are open to high school seniors, college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors who are the dependents of employees or are themselves employees of a NEWFDA Member company.  Graduate students who are also current NEWFDA Member employees are also eligible to apply for scholarships.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, as well as outstanding community service and leadership.  Students may re-apply on a yearly basis, as long as the eligibility requirements are met.


Scholarship applications are available through May 1 of each year.  The 2016/2017 Scholarship Application will be available soon.
