FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The 2016 application period for the Believe and Achieve Scholarship Program runs until Dec. 15. The program will provide critical financial assistance to more than 100 bright and ambitious high school seniors in the fall of 2016.

Since founding the popular scholarship program in 2006, Cumberland Farms has already provided more than $1 million in scholarships to more than 1,000 college-bound students. 

The Believe and Achieve Scholarship program, created specifically to support the development of young students, provides $1,000 scholarships to 130 eligible graduating high school seniors each year. In 2015, the company awarded $130,000 in Believe and Achieve Scholarships to students from Connecticut, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

One special Believe and Achieve Scholarship winner will be designated the “Haseotes Scholar.” Named for the founders of the company, the Haseotes Scholar Award is presented to the student who best exemplifies the values of hard work, achievement and commitment to community.

The program is open to students entering a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited college, university or vocational-technical school in the fall of 2016 who live within 30 miles of any Cumberland Farms location.
