BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Wegmans announced on Tuesday 1,842 employees will receive college tuition assistance for the upcoming academic year through the Wegmans Employee Scholarship Program.
The company says they expect to pay out $5 million to both new and returning scholarship recipients during the 2020-2021 school year.
To receive a scholarship, Wegmans says employees must meet work-performance criteria, and eligibility is also based on a minimum number of work hours over a specified period.
“Our employees play such a vital role in our company and we are so grateful for them, especially during this unprecedented time,” says Colleen Wegman, President & CEO of the supermarket chain.
Wegmans will recognize all graduating employees with a graduation certificate and a gift to help them celebrate at home during the weekend on June 13 and 14.
