Scholarship Name: AmerisourceBergen and Good Neighbor Pharmacy Scholarships
Description: AmerisourceBergen is one of those Fortune 500 companies that probably isn’t a household name. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who really knows much about what the company does. However AmerisourceBergen, as one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the country, is probably much more a part of your daily life than you think. They also offer two very different types of scholarships to high school and college students in the community. The first is one that you can’t really apply for; as part of the National Merit Scholarship program, AmerisourceBergen sponsors a number of National Merit Scholarships at select schools. In addition, in order to advance good pharmacy practices, AmerisourceBergen has teamed up with Good Neighbor Pharmacy to offer community scholarships to pharmacy students. The program is available in more than 12 universities nationwide, and cover everything from undergraduate study, PharmD and internship programs, depending on the partnership.
Awards per Year: Varies
Scholarship is Open to: High School Seniors, Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students

Scholarship Name: Kroger/United Negro Scholarship Fund Scholarship
Description: Kroger might be the local grocer to those of us living in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and West Virginia, but did you know that the chain of stores is actually a fortune 500 company? And that is does much more for college students than just offering tasty snacks 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? In addition to serving the northern central United States with food stores, Kroger has also teamed up with the United Negro College Fund to offer scholarships to minority high school seniors with GPAs of at least 2.5. As is true with most UNCF scholarships, students must attend one of the colleges in the UNCF network (a complete listing can be found on the UNCF website).
Award: up to $5,000
Awards per Year: Varies
Scholarship is Open to: High School Seniors
