The Gina Gentleman Scholarships recognize Sodexo Canada employees or their immediate family members who have demonstrated outstanding community involvement by volunteering for a cause of their choice. Three winners will receive a $2,500 scholarship for tuition and related expenses to a recognized post-secondary institution. In addition, the Stop Hunger Foundation will donate $1,000 to a local charity of the winners' choice.
The Stop Hunger Foundation welcomes applications from Sodexo employees or their immediate family members who wish to pursue higher education (CEGEP and university).
Applicants are invited to submit a letter of motivation demonstrating their involvement in their community and explaining why they wish to be selected.
Preference will be given to applicants who have demonstrated regular involvement and to applicants who have demonstrated involvement in the fight against hunger.
The scholarships honour the memory of Gina Gentleman, a 41-year Sodexo employee who volunteered and inspired others to feed children in need.
Applications are open from Monday 28 March 2022 to 1 June 2023.
