Sam's Club Scholarship

As a trustee of New Jersey City University (an HSI) and the CEO of DiversityInc, which collaborates with organizations such as NSHMBA, ALPFA and HACR, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Sam’s Club is sponsoring a $100,000 scholarship competition for students enrolled at an HACU-accredited HSI. Sam’s Club, the nation’s eighth-largest retailer and a leading membership warehouse club, is a division of Walmart.

We are inviting any full-time sophomore or junior enrolled at an HACU-accredited HSI to participate individually or on a team of no more than three (3) to write a marketing plan that focuses on building the connection between Sam’s Club and the Latino communities it serves.

All submitted plans will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and the top five (5) plans submitted will receive $20,000 each: $15,000 for the student(s) and $5,000 for the college or university. The program will run from Jan. 3, 2011, to May 14, 2011. The winners will be announced during DiversityInc’s Gala Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 9, 2011, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

With the rising costs of education, we hope you will promote this opportunity to your friends and family. For more information, please visit or contact Carolynn Johnson at or 973-494-0539.
