The 2021 Associated Grocers GMRA Scholarship Fund recipients were recently announced. The Associated Grocers/GMRA partnership scholarship program benefits students working within Associated Grocers retail member stores. The Grocery Manufacturers Representatives Association (GMRA) is a nonprofit organization formed in Louisiana to bring grocery manufacturers and retailers together. The selected recipients will receive $1,000 the first year ($500 per semester), and then $3,000 for each of the following 3 years ($1,500 per semester) that they remain working within an Associated Grocers member store. That is up to $10,000! Read More about this year's winners.
