Dear Friends:

It’s time to start the scholarship awards process for the 2016-17 academic year.
As a member of the Massachusetts Vending Association, your employees (and members of
their immediate families) are eligible to apply for scholarship aid. I have included PDF
files of our Scholarship Application for their use, and a poster that you may use to
publicize the program. Please feel free to print, email, or otherwise distribute as many
copies as you need.
As in the past, scholarship applications must be returned to this office no later than
May 31, 2016. They may be returned via US mail, fax or scanned & emailed. The
eligibility of each applicant must be verified by an officer of the sponsoring company and
the sponsoring company must be a member in good standing of the Massachusetts Vending
Association. The applicant must be an employee, or a member of the immediate family of
a current employee. Please take the time to follow through with this requirement. We
cannot accept an application without the employer’s signature. Also, please remind
the applicants to include their latest, academic grade reports with their application.
Since its inception, the Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $504,000 in scholarship
aid to the families of employees of our member companies. As you know, this program is
totally funded by voluntary contributions from the member companies. Your generous
support in the form of annual gifts, dues contributions, and participation and sponsorship at
our annual golf outing, all help to make this program work.
Thank you for your continuing support.
