Each year, the beverage giant passes out 250 $20,000 awards to current high school seniors carrying at least a 3.0 at the end of their junior year. Essays, teacher recommendations, and transcripts are not required until candidates make it to the semi-final round and those who break into the finalists circle will be required to complete an in-person interview as well. Historically the scholarship committee has placed heavy emphasis on community service work so get ready to talk about what you are doing to help the world.
