Making a Difference through Education
We believe that education creates opportunity. That’s why we’re passionate about creating more opportunities for education in our communities.
We created the Wegmans Scholarship Program in 1984 to assist our people in their pursuit of higher education. Since then, we’ve awarded over $130 million to more than 42,500 employees.

“This program provides growth opportunities for our people, helping them pursue higher education and career goals that positively benefit communities.” Colleen Wegman, CEO and President
Our Wegmans Work-Scholarship Program is designed to help support underserved high school students through employment and a mentorship with Wegmans, as well as give them access to our Employee Scholarship Program and opportunities for advancement within the company. With each school’s support and the help of appointed youth advocates, our goal is to set these students up for success and teach them skills that can be transferred to their schoolwork.
In addition to our scholarship programs, we’re committed to helping kids learn about food by supporting our local schools, PTAs, and K-12 school activities and nutrition programs.
