Termination of CES Funding

The CES program is built upon the guiding principles established by Mr. & Mrs. Hershey in the Deed of Trust (1909). Section 21 of the Deed of Trust states,

“All children shall leave the institution and cease to be the recipients of its benefits upon their completion of the full course of secondary education being offered at the School. The Managers may in their discretion provide for such a system of premiums and rewards dependent upon good behavior, character, and proficiency….”

The CES program is an example of a system of premiums and rewards that Mr. & Mrs. Hershey describe. The CES program is an investment in the lives of our graduates, and for the most recent school year, the program projects to invest $5.5 MILLION dollars. Students no longer proving worthy of this investment privilege may be terminated from the CES program if their behavior does not meet the standards set forth by Mr. & Mrs. Hershey.

Students who are not acting in accordance with the sacred values of integrity and mutual respect that compose the core fiber of Milton Hershey School may be permanently terminated from the CES program. Examples of behavior that may lead to termination include, but are not limited to:

  • Fraudulent or forged academic transcripts or Release Forms;
  • Criminal behavior;
  • Disrespectful behavior towards Milton Hershey School or its employees;
  • Failure to disclose pertinent information regarding financial aid resources;
  • Failure to disclose/direct your school to submit refunds due to overpayments or other circumstances directly to the Milton Hershey School;
  • Acceptance, in any way, of CES funds when you are not in compliance with published requirements (i.e. full-time enrollment or other basic requirements).

In summary, submitting fraudulent information, improperly accepting CES funds you are not eligible to receive, failing to direct your school to submit refunds due to overpayments or other circumstances directly to Milton Hershey School, or in any other way not meeting the CES requirements stipulated in the Deed of Trust of good behavior, character and proficiency is grounds for permanent termination from the CES program and possible pursuit of legal action against the student to recoup any CES funds owed to the School.

Terminations will be a joint decision involving two or more of the following: Financial Aid Coordinator, Director of Graduate Programs for Success, or the CES Advisory Committee. All termination decisions will be sent in writing to the student.
