The James & Theresa Nolan
Family Foundation Scholarship

This scholarship was established to memorialize Jim Nolan, who took an ethical stand on a business matter at great cost to himself. As a result of his professional ethics, Nolan was ostracized by colleagues and remained isolated in his efforts to maintain moral integrity in his workplace.

It would have taken only a few others with the courage to speak out to change the course of events. Tragically, Jim died before the trial that finally vindicated his actions but a judge and a jury of 13 found in his favor.

The James and Theresa Nolan Family Foundation scholarship is available to New England Produce Council members in good standing including their children and grandchildren.

Please complete the application provided at the link below. 

An essay is required. Please submit a minimum of 500 to 1000 words on the importance of ethics, describing a situation where doing the right thing was difficult but you did so in spite of the cost. 

Please include your thoughts on ethical lessons learned from your experience, and how these lessons can be applied to corporate America.

All applications must be postmarked by June 1st.

Our sincere thanks to Theresa Nolan for providing this scholarship to the members of the New England Produce Council.
