NSPA Member Highlights

Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation

"Membership in the NSPA has been an invaluable resource over the years. The ability to meaningfully connect with other scholarship providers committed to student success has had a positive and enduring impact on our own ability to make a difference in the lives of our Scholars." -Jane Hale Hopkins, Vice President

Since 1989, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has helped dreams come true for high-achieving students across the country, providing a total of more than $60 million in scholarships to 5,437 high school seniors through the Coca-Cola Scholars Program and 5,750 community college students through the Two-Year Scholars Program. The Coca-Cola System believes that investing in students who are leaders, both academically and in service to others, will result in positive, lasting change and sustainable communities.

Beginning in the fall of 2013, the Foundation modified their selection process to incorporate regional interviews and increased all awards to $20,000 each for 150 Coca-Cola Scholars. Once selected, these Scholars travel to Atlanta to celebrate and commend the noble impact they have already had in their communities and participate in a two day Leadership Development Institute.

In addition to awarding college financial assistance to exceptional students, the Foundation connects and continually nurtures an extended family of passionate, motivated, socially-conscious and service-minded leaders. Scholars created an Alumni Advisory Board in 2006 and have hosted Leadership Summits focused on alumni professional and personal development in 2008 and 2013. The lifetime connection, camaraderie and sense of family are what make the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation unique.
