"I felt validated as a scholar and first-generation student. As this was one of the first scholarships I received, the acceptance propelled me to continue applying to scholarships during my senior year in high school, resulting in enough financial aid to graduate college debt-free. It was a huge confidence booster knowing my efforts were validated."
"The scholarship has given me plenty of opportunities and the faith to pursue them, such as studying abroad. I have been to three countries since starting college, which I would not have had the confidence to do without the belief Burger King had in me for my studies."
“The BK scholarship helped me realize that anything is possible. I wasn’t sure if I was going to receive any additional financial assistance for college, but the Burger King Scholarship helped me out a lot during my 1st year in college. It relived a lot of stress on my family financially while we were still going through a difficult time. I am grateful to whomever directed me to apply for the scholarship and the scholarship committee for its communication during that time and for their review of my scholarship materials!.”
