It is as common as red lights in most parts of the country to find Dunkin. However, what if every franchise in your area also offered the opportunity to earn free money in college? Scholarships are available through the Dunkin University Scholarship Program to students in locations that are served by cafes and donut shops. You can find out if you live near a participating company on the exchange’s website.


The Dunkin’ Donuts Scholarship is for “complete” students. Qualify students to show they have completed all aspects of high school, from work experience to community service. Students must also have a positive academic record and leadership experience in school activities. However, the great thing about this scholarship is that while you need to have experience in all these things, scholarships are not necessarily reserved for the best in class or those with the most impressive work. Students who have made the most of high school should be considered.
