Through the Burger King Scholars program, we’ve awarded nearly $55 million to over 45,000 deserving students across the North America. Our goal is to grant one scholarship for every BK® restaurant in North America—that’s more than $7 million each year!
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 offset the cost of attending college or post-secondary vocational/technical school. Recipients are selected based on their grade point average (GPA), work experience, extracurricular activities and community service.
The application period for the 2022-2023 cycle begins on Oct. 15, 2022 and closes Dec. 15, 2022.
