To celebrate Coca-Cola’s centennial in 1986, the Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola bottlers teamed together to fund the Coca−Cola Scholars Foundation. This commitment to education enables the Foundation to support over 1,400 college students each year, with annual scholarships of $3.4 million through two nationally recognized programs on behalf of the Coca−Cola System.

The mission of the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is to provide scholarship programs and alumni enrichment opportunities in support of exceptional peoples’ thirst for knowledge and their desire to make a difference in the world.
