About Big Y's Scholarship Program

Big Y has awarded 4.5 million dollars to over 5,900 students since the beginning of the program.

Big Y® Foods, Inc. is one of the largest, locally owned supermarket chains in Southern New England. A family-owned and operated corporation, Big Y has represented excellence in the food industry since 1936.

In tribute to both its employees and its customers, Big Y offers an annual scholarship program. Established in 1981, the program includes a series of scholarships which honor Big Y's founders; the late Paul H. D'Amour and his brother, Gerald D'Amour. In addition, there is a scholarship series that was originally funded by Big Y employees to commemorate Big Y's 50th Anniversary, one recognizing the contributions of area law enforcement officers and firefighters and a category that acknowledges the tremendous sacrifice made by all Military Service members and their families.

All Big Y scholarships recognize academic merit and achievement. They are awarded to the most academically outstanding students in the Big Y market area. There are awards for both traditional and nontraditional students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Thank you for visiting! The 2019 Big Y Scholarship Application is now Closed. 2020 online application will be available November 2019.
