Scholarship Name: Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship
Description: In most parts of the country, Dunkin’ Donuts are about as ubiquitous as stoplights. But what if for every franchise that opened up near you, there was also an opportunity for some free money for college? Through the Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship program, students in areas served by the coffee and donut shop can qualify for $2,000 college scholarships. You can use the scholarship website to find out if you live near a participating store. The Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship is for “well-rounded” students. To qualify students have to demonstrate that they have participated in all aspects of high school – from work experience to community service. Students should also demonstrate a positive academic record, and have leadership experience in school activities. But the great thing about this scholarship is that while you should have experience in all these things, the scholarships are not necessarily reserved for the top in the class, or the one who the most impressive job. They are looking for average students who have made the most out of their high school experience.
