Dunkin’ and its greater Philadelphia-area franchisees, in partnership with Scholarship America, has announced the recipients of its 10th annual Regional Scholarship Program, which helps high school seniors and college students pursue a part-time or full-time undergraduate degree at the institution of their choice.
From more than 2,000 applicants, Dunkin’ and Scholarship America selected 25 students
to receive $2,000 academic scholarships to an accredited two or four-year college,
university or vocational-technical school of their choice in Fall 2019.
New for 2019, Dunkin’s Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program was open to current part-time and full-time undergraduate students and high school seniors. Dunkin’ awarded a total of $50,000 to the 25 recipients who were selected based on their academic records,
demonstrated leadership skills, and overall commitment to their schools and local communities.
To date, the Dunkin’ Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program has awarded $400,000 in scholarships to 250 outstanding high school seniors and college students. The program
was founded in 2009 by Dunkin’s Philadelphia-area franchisees as a way to ease the
financial burden of college for students throughout the region.
“On behalf of my fellow franchisees, we are honored to award these exceptional students
with the 2019 Dunkin’ Regional Scholarships,” said Perry Shah, local Dunkin’ franchisee
and Philadelphia regional advertising committee chairman. “As we celebrate the
scholarship program’s tenth anniversary, we are so proud to see it continue to grow and
support students here in our local communities. We are honored to have the opportunity
to further students’ educational goals and look forward to the amazing achievements
these future leaders will accomplish.”
