The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation awards $20,000 to high school seniors who have demonstrated a capacity to lead and serve in their communities.
The winners of the scholarship get 4-10 years to use the full amount of the scholarship to pay for tuition, housing, and text books.
The scholarship requires an academic record of all classes taken and grades, school clubs and organizations, non-school related awards, community service hours, and paid work experiences.
There are over 100,000 applications received each year, but only 150 students receive the prestigious award. The first round of elimination resulted in only 1,609 students to continue to the Semifinalist round.
Congratulations to Jenna Paul for being a part of the 1.9% of applicants that advanced to the Semifinalist round!
