Focus on the Future Scholarship

Brookshire Grocery Co. (BGC) is proud to establish the “Focus on the Future” scholarship program which is in partnership with more than 40 universities and colleges in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. This more than $1 million donation is a substantial representation of BGC’s dedication to education and giving back to those who aspire to build a better future in the communities it serves.  

This program is designed to reward students in BGC’s market areas for their dedication, hard work and outstanding academic achievements. The Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods “Focus on the Future” scholarship will provide tuition assistance to graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in the participating institutions starting in fall 2021. Requirements will vary by school, but the program intends to reward recipients based on financial need and leadership. The majority of the scholarships are established in perpetuity to be annual scholarships. 

Focus on the Future is representative for BGC’s values. Since 1928, the company has operated on a strong foundation of core values. One of the six core values is “Results-Driven with a Future Focus” meaning BGC strives for positive results every day which allows the company to better serve our customers, communities and employee-partners. BGC intends for this scholarship program to award students, who need financial assistance to obtain a higher education, to focus on their endeavors to become the community leaders of tomorrow.

Scholarship applications will be processed through each college and university starting for the Fall 2021 semester for most programs. Please check your college website for more information.
