Three 2020 Central Bucks graduates are among the recipients of the 11th annual Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program, presented by Dunkin’ and its greater Philadelphia-area franchisees in partnership with Scholarship America.
The scholarship winners include Chris Abraham of Furlong, Central Bucks High School East; Natalie Yim of Doylestown, Central Bucks High School West; and Gavin Campbell of Chalfont, Central Bucks High School South.
From more than 1,500 applicants, Dunkin’ and Scholarship America selected 25 students to receive a $2,000 academic scholarship to an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school of their choice for fall 2020.
Dunkin’s Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program was open to current part-time and full-time undergraduate students and high school seniors. Dunkin’ awarded a total of $50,000 to the 25 recipients who were selected based on their academic records, demonstrated leadership skills and overall commitment to their schools and local communities.
To date, the Dunkin’ Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program has awarded $450,000 in scholarships to 275 outstanding high school seniors and college students.
The program was founded in 2009 by Dunkin’s Philadelphia-area franchisees as a way to ease the financial burden of college for students throughout the region.
To celebrate their 2020 Dunkin’ Regional Scholarship, each of the student recipients enjoyed a special visit at their residence from the Dunkin’ Community Cruiser.
