The Coca-Cola Foundation has contributed a $100,000 scholarship grant to the University of Washington’s Bothell campus. The grant will provide 10 first-generation students with $2,500 scholarships that are renewable for four years. The program will also pair each student with a peer mentor during their freshman and sophomore years, and an industry mentor during their junior and senior years.
The Coca-Cola Foundation has given more than $820 million worldwide to enhance the sustainability of communities. Since its inception in 1984, the Foundation has supported education and development. The Foundation’s current priorities are Water, Women and Well-being.
