NEW HAMPSHIRE (March 1, 2018) – Local Dunkin’ Donuts business owners in New Hampshire are now welcoming applications for the 23rd annual New Hampshire Scholarship Program and will award $30,000 in college scholarships to 12 deserving New Hampshire high school seniors this spring. Since 1995, the New Hampshire Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees have given more than half a million dollars in scholarship grants to talented students in the community who uphold the mission to help those that serve others.
“As local business owners in New Hampshire, we are thrilled to continue serving our local communities through our annual scholarship program,” said Adam Quinn, a New Hampshire Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee. “Year after year, we are continuously impressed by the smarts, selflessness and determination of the scholarship recipients and look forward to recognizing these students as leaders in the community and helping them achieve their goals through education.”
Applications are open now and the deadline to apply is April 13, 2018 at 5 PM EST. In 2018, 12 scholarships, each in the amount of $2,500, will be awarded to qualified students throughout New Hampshire. Current employees of franchised Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants are encouraged to apply to the Dunkin’ Donuts New Hampshire Scholarship Program. The scholarship program is open to any qualified high school senior who is a current resident of New Hampshire and enrolling full-time at a post-secondary institution, including four-year, two-year or community technical college with a focus on business or food service-related fields, such as hospitality, culinary arts or nutrition. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation will review scholarship applications and determine the award recipients. Applicants will also be considered for other scholarships administered by the Foundation.
“We are very grateful for the continued support of the Dunkin’ Donuts business owners in New Hampshire, who help our local students excel through the New Hampshire Scholarship Program,” says Judy Burrows, Director of Student Aid at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “With the increasing cost of education, we know how important these scholarships are in helping New Hampshire students achieve their academic and career goals and we urge all interested students to take advantage of this opportunity and apply by the April 13 deadline.”
Scholarship recipients will be notified by the end of April. Dunkin’ Donuts will host a special event to honor recipients and their families in June.
