Scholarship Opportunities



 The Charles McCullom Scholarship Fund is the sole province of the members of the Food Industry Alliance of New York State and requires your support to continue and improve the work of providing highly-educated, dedicated professionals for our Industry.

The Charles McCullom Scholarship Fund was initiated in 1991 in memory of Charlie McCullom, Senior Vice President of Nabisco Foods. The scholarship allows Charlie’s name to live on in the industry to which he dedicated so many years of his life. His tireless efforts to build solid relationships among retailers, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and brokers were appreciated by all who knew Charlie. The Scholarship is a testimony to the industry’s gratitude for all of his work and achievements as well as his belief that highly educated people entering the industry will continue to make the grocery business a dynamic place for career enhancement.

The Charles McCullom Scholarship Fund is a tax-exempt non-profit organization. Personal and corporate contributions are tax deductible.
