Several years ago, House of Raeford Farms established a $250,000 endowment scholarship fund for the Poultry Science Department at NC State University. Called the “Marvin and Grace Johnson Poultry Science Scholarship Endowment,” it awards one or more scholarships to students attending NC State who are majoring in poultry science.
In addition, in conjunction with our affiliates, we sponsor a scholarship program to support and encourage House of Raeford employees’ dependent children and grandchildren who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school. Each scholarship is awarded for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice. Guidelines and application forms are available here.
Finally, at a music academy in Rose Hill, NC, we provide scholarships for gifted young people in need. Children of some of our local Duplin County, NC employees have benefited from this opportunity.
