For more than a quarter of a century, Coke Scholars have refreshed the world.

These extraordinary humans have filled society’s coffers with bolder action, more amazing technology, bigger advancements, healthier futures and exponential possibility.

We are proud to assist them on their paths to greatness.

Thanks to the support of The Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola bottlers, our work is a lasting, ever-renewing legacy, one perpetuated by the powerful force for change that is our global network of Scholars. Through them, we fulfill our vision of an influential community of socially conscious, service-minded leaders positively shaping the world, connected by Coca-Cola.

Service that shapes lives is our goal.
