Burger King co-founder James McLamore placed value on education, entrepreneurial spirit, integrity, high standards and good citizenship.
Those values defined him and now carry on his legacy in the form of the annual Burger King Scholars program for employees and their spouses, domestic partners and children — and high school seniors in the community.
More than 20 scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $50,000 are available this year.
There are scholarships for high school seniors as well Burger King employees and their families.
There’s no essay is required; all you have to do is meet the eligibility requirements to be considered for one of the scholarships.
The foundation will accept only 50,000 applications from Oct. 15 to Dec. 15, 2018.
Burger King Scholarship Eligibility
There are two tracks for scholarships — one for general applicants and another for employees and their families. Applicants from both pools will be considered for the James W. McLamore Whopper Scholarship.
