Personal development has long been a core value among Dollar General employees. In 1999, to mark the 60th anniversary of Dollar General’s founding and to honor his four children, Cal Turner Sr. established the Turner Family Scholarship Fund to benefit his extended family, Dollar General’s employees and their children.

Eligible applicants must be full-time or part-time employees of Dollar General with at least one year of service to the company. Children of full-time employees with at least one year of service are also eligible to apply. Eligible applicants may choose any area of study; coursework does not have to be related to the person’s job. Employees may enroll in classes at a community college or vocational school or attend a four-year college or university. These choices reflect the personal development goals of the applicants.
