Burger King Scholars

Each year, through the Foundation’s Burger King Scholars program, we award thousands of scholarships to eligible high school seniors and Burger King employees, their spouses and children. This year alone, we awarded $4.5 million in scholarship grants to almost 4,000 students in North America.

Since 2012 with Room to Read, we’ve impacted the lives of more than 100,000 children. How did we do this? By establishing over 200 libraries, schools and literacy programs, as well as publishing five children’s books for students in South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Cambodia, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
