About the Scholarship

The annual Nuts About Granola® Innovation Scholarship will be funded by a portion of the proceeds from the co-branded, “E-town Carrot Cake Granola.” It will be awarded to a full-time Elizabethtown College student who demonstrates innovative thinking, creativity and a passion for healthy living.

Full Circle Approach

The Nuts About Granola® Innovation Scholarship is innovative in its own right. The scholarship is funded through a full circle approach. Nuts About Granola® produces the granola for sale to students, alumni and friends of the College. A portion of the proceeds from the sales fund the scholarship; as granola sales increase, so does the scholarship fund. So in the end, the consumer enjoys the granola, the company enjoys profits and the Elizabethtown College students benefit from the scholarship. A full circle, sustainable effort.

2017 Scholarship Theme:

Incorporating Healthy Eating into a College Lifestyle

Healthy eating can mean many things to many people. Nuts About Granola® is an advocate for a whole food diet, one rich in fresh foods free of artificial ingredients, additives and preservatives. They work to educate consumers on the benefits of real food as well as offer a selection of products to aid a healthy lifestyle. It can be a challenge to maintain good nutrition in a college environment with buffet style dining halls, crazy class schedules and the stress of a full academic load.

This year’s scholarship challenges students to take a photo of an innovative way a student can incorporate healthy eating into their college lifestyle.
