Applicants must be current high school (or home-schooled) seniors, must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents, must be planning to pursue a degree at an accredited university or college, and must have a minimum 3.0 GPA at the end of their junior year of high school.
Those who are children or grand-children of Coca-Cola employees do not qualify to apply, but applicants who do meet the requirements can apply each year for one of 250 four-year, achievement-based scholarships.
The application requests a significant amount of detailed information about the student such as their biographical data, school activities, community activities, academic information, and employment information.
From thousands of applications, only 250 finalists will be invited to Atlanta, Georgia for personal interviews. These finalists will be interviewed by a National Selection Committee representing outstanding leaders in business, government, education and the arts.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in OCTOBER of each year, and the award amount is usually $10,000 - $20,000.
