The Sodexho Foundation—an independent charitable organization supporting initiatives that focus on eliminating hunger in the U.S.—is seeking nominations of student leaders working toward reducing hunger within their communities.

The Sodexho STOP Hunger Award and Scholarship will give each selected student a $3,000 scholarship award and a $3,000 grant in their name for the hunger-related charity of their choice.

Eligible candidates must be enrolled in an educational institution and be able to demonstrate an on-going commitment to hunger relief in their community.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, April 30. A panel of judges appointed by the Sodexho Foundation will select the winners in May. The scholarships will be presented to the student winners in person on June 11 at an awards gala.
