The Coca-Cola Program Scholarship was created by the Coca-Cola Foundation to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Roberto Goizueta, a longtime Coca-Cola leader and former Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, and to honor his love of education and respect for the importance of lifelong learning. Since its founding in 2003, The Coca-Cola Program Scholarship has provided opportunities for more than 13,000 college students to further their education through full or partial tuition scholarships at leading U.S. universities.
Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation – A Brief History
The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation was founded in 1985 by The Coca-Cola Company and Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, who sought to create a scholarship program that would enable scholars to pursue their goals without financial worries. Since then, over 10,000 scholars have been awarded scholarships totaling more than $131 million. With an 85% completion rate, these recipients are some of America’s brightest young people. Now in its thirtieth year, Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation remains one of our nation’s most prestigious scholarship programs—one we’re excited to continue offering for future generations. The program has been renamed as of October 2017. It will now be called: Coca Cola Scholars Foundation: A Coca Cola Company Funded Scholarship Program
