Requirements for the Coke Scholarship?

Does anyone have any detailed information on the Coke Scholarship? I've heard a lot about it, and from all accounts, it seems like an excellent opportunity. I just can't seem to find much about what the requirements are. Anyone who's applied or is knowledgeable about it, please help!

The Coca-Cola Scholars Program is indeed a prestigious scholarship, awarded annually to 150 high school seniors in the United States. Each recipient receives $20,000 for college education. Here are some of the key eligibility requirements and deadlines:

- The applicant must be a high school (or home-schooled) senior during the time of application.

- They must possess U.S. citizenship, hold a U.S. Permanent Resident card, or other approved status (e.g., DACA, Asylum, Refugee).

- The applicant needs to be planning to pursue a degree at an accredited U.S. post-secondary institution.

- They should have a minimum weighted GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

It's important to keep in mind that the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation emphasizes leadership and service. Applicants are evaluated on their demonstrated commitment to leadership, service, and action that positively affects others.

As for the application timeline, here's a general outline:

- August: The application opens.

- Late October: The application closes.

- November–December: Semifinalists are notified and required to provide additional information.

- Late December–January: Finalists are selected and notified.

- Late February: Finalist interviews and Coca-Cola Scholars are chosen.

One last piece of advice is to complete the application early and carefully. Answer every question and double-check your responses. The competition is intense, so make sure that your application truly reflects who you are and what you've accomplished. Good luck!
