BURGER KING Scholars Program
Created in memory of Burger King Co-founder James “Jim” W. McLamore, the Burger King Scholars program has awarded nearly $55 million in scholarships to over 45,000 high school students, BK® employees and their families across North America since 2000. In 2022 alone, the Foundation awarded over $4.6 million in scholarships to nearly 4,000 students.
Scholarship grants range from $1,000 to $50,000 and are intended to help students in the United States, Puerto Rico, Guam and Canada offset the cost of attending college or post-secondary vocational/technical school.
You are invited to apply for the Burger King Scholars program if you are a high school senior in one of those locations, you have a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent); you demonstrate community involvement through volunteering, sports, clubs and/or religious organizations; and you plan to enroll full-time in 2024-25 at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico or Guam.
