Restaurant Technologies Educational Foundation

Giving children opportunities to go far

College is expensive and Restaurant Technologies wants to invest in our next generation of leaders. The Restaurant Technologies Educational Foundation awards merit-based college scholarships with a historical maximum of $2,500 per year to children of Restaurant Technologies employees attending two- or four-year colleges and universities. Selection is based on academic promise, leadership, extracurricular activities and exemplary citizenship. Since the Foundation was established in 2013, we have raised over $450,000 and awarded 66 scholarships to children of Restaurant Technologies employees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Children of RT employees are eligible including natural, adopted, stepchildren, and legal wards who are 24 years of age or younger. Employee must have worked for RT on a full-time basis (32 hours or more/week) for 52 weeks leading up to the application deadline.
Applicants must be in their senior year of high school; or currently attending a post-secondary institution; or entered in the military during the first academic year following the end of their senior year in high school and have been honorably discharged. All applicants must be accepted to a qualified post-secondary institution and commence their post-secondary education or training in the first academic year following the end of their senior year in high school. There is an exception, however, for applicants who entered the military during the first academic year following the end of their senior year in high school and were honorably discharged. Such individuals may apply any time after discharge. Applicants currently attending a post-secondary institution may apply for a scholarship for years two through four of their post-secondary education.
The RT Educational Foundation Board has the sole responsibility for selecting recipients — basing the decision on academic promise, qualities of leadership, and good citizenship.
The Foundation will determine the amount of each award based on the total amount of money available in the fund. The historical maximum award to scholarship winners is $2,500 per academic year.
Scholarships are awarded for one year but will be renewed annually until completion of the course of study in which the student is enrolled, up to 4 years, upon approval of a scholarship renewal submission. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale is required for renewal. If the award winner’s cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for a full academic year, the scholarship will not be renewed. The student may reapply for the scholarship during the next application period. The award winner’s parent/guardian must continue to be an employee of Restaurant Technologies on the date(s) any scholarship award is distributed.
The application period opens every year from Feb 1 – Feb 28th. No later than April 1st of each year, the Scholarship Committee will select the scholarship winners and determine the amount of each scholarship. The scholarship winners will be notified no later than April 15th. No later than May 15th, each winner must accept the scholarship by returning an acceptance form to the foundation. No later than September 15th, the scholarship funds will be applied directly to the student’s account at the postsecondary school where they are enrolled.
We would like to fund as many scholarships as possible for our RT families. If you are interested, you can donate to fund the program. Whether you have — or will have — a student, donations in any amount will make a difference in opening doors for our young people. To contribute, you can make a one-time donation through Educational Foundation App found on your company phone or in Workday under Benefits, you can arrange for direct deduction(s) from your paycheck.
