COCA−COLA Scholarships

Overview

1. Seniors in high schools throughout the United States who meet the eligibility requirements may apply each year for one of 250 four-year, achievement-based scholarships.

2. Approximately 2,200 applicants will be selected as Semifinalists and notified by mail and email around December 1.

Our Program Review Committee will select 250 Finalists to advance to the final interview phase. Notifications are sent mid-February.

The Finalists are interviewed by a National Selection Committee representing outstanding leaders in business, government, education and the arts. 50 students are then designated as National Scholars and receive awards of $20,000 for college; 200 students are designated as Regional Scholars and receive awards of $10,000 for college.

SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

We are glad you are exploring the Coca-Cola Scholars Program for college funding. Each year we award 50 scholarships of $20,000 and 200 scholarships of $10,000. Please read these instructions carefully when completing the application.

This is a highly competitive program and will require that you take the time to fully and accurately portray yourself. The information you collect for this scholarship application will no doubt help you present yourself for other scholarships and for your college admissions applications.

Please do not be discouraged by the number of questions and amount of information requested. To identify 250 scholarship recipients from the millions of high school seniors graduating this year requires a significant amount of detailed information.

Detailed Instructions:

Page 1: Biographical Information

Please carefully complete the biographical information (name, address, etc.). Be sure your information is accurate and complete for notification purposes. All fields with an asterisk (*) are required and cannot be blank.

Please check the box, indicating you are a high school senior expecting to graduate this academic year. You are eligible to apply ONLY if you expect to graduate this academic year. If you have not yet attained graduating senior status, then you may be eligible in a future year.

Please select your citizenship status from the dropdown list. You must be a U.S. Citizen or legal resident of the U.S. to apply.

School Info: The CEEB (SAT/ACT) code is NOT a test score. It is the six-digit school code which identifies your school for SAT and ACT registration. If you do not know this number, please ask your guidance counselor or visit the College Board website.

Homeschoolers should use the "school" CEEB code number of 111111.

Questions related to ethnicity, disability, and family income are voluntary but provide for useful applicant comparative purposes. This information is not used as a determining factor in the selection process.

Page 2: School Activities

The first three questions help the Scholars Foundation evaluate those students who may be limited in their activities by school policy. It is in your best interest to indicate a response here.

Indicate the position(s) you have been elected/appointed to in these common school activities. NOTE: If you are an officer/editor of an organization in any particular year, you cannot also mark that you are a representative or staff/contributor.

Please be sure to distinguish the years (9-12) when you count the number of clubs/organizations.

No application can address all of the clubs and organizations that might be available in the high schools across our country. The question listed as “Other School-related Clubs, Organizations, Intramurals not previously listed”, allows you to tell us about your participation and leadership in school-related clubs, organization and intramurals not addressed in in the previous questions. Use this space to identify theother roles and activities you have in your school.

Awards, Honors, Special Skills or Talents tell us about the honors you have received, or special skills you have, that are most meaningful to you and whether they were on a local (school, county, or district),state or national level. This question allows for a short description of up to 10 different honors, talents, skills or positions. These may be talents or skills outside of school activities, but should not be duplicated in other areas of this application.

If your school system requires volunteer service as a condition of graduation, please indicate the amount in the first question by grade year.

Next, please indicate the hours of volunteer service you've performed by grade year.

Please indicate the number of community organizations that you actively participated in during each grade year. Note that these organizations can be school-related, but should not duplicate any responses you made in any previous section of the application.

Please provide a brief description of any awards or honors you may have received for your works in community organizations in and indicate the grade level of the award.
