Eligible students must have volunteered without pay for community services that support the fight against hunger at least 12 months prior to applying.

The Stephen J. Brady STOP Hunger Scholarships are funded by Sodexo Foundation, a non-profit organization formed in 1999 to help end childhood hunger in America.
