Associate Support


We proudly support our associates and their dependents through scholarships and the Associates in Critical Need Trust, a fund dedicated to assisting associates affected by disasters and other financial hardships.

The Walmart Foundation’s Associate Scholarship Program was created to empower our associates and their children through education. Over the past three decades, the Foundation has been proud to offer scholarships to eligible associates and their high school senior dependents. In FY2019, we awarded over 650 new scholarships and provided over $4 million in funding for associates and their children to pursue two- or four-year college degrees, trade or technical school certificates.
