On Monday, August 3rd, Dunkin’ and its Community Cruiser will honor local high school graduate from Gloucester County, Madison Kelly, who recently was selected as a recipient of the eleventh annual Dunkin’ Regional Scholarship Program. Each student will be awarded a $2,000 academic scholarship to pursue a full-time undergraduate degree at the institution of their choice.
Dunkin’ will celebrate each student by providing a well-deserved Iced Coffee break with the recipient’s family, friends, and neighbors at the student’s residence (with social distancing measures and safety precautions in place). In addition to the coffee break, guests will also enjoy Dunkin’ Munchkins® Donut Hole Treats, customized screen-printed donuts, a Dunkin’-branded prize wheel, photo opportunities, music, and more! During the visit, the student will be individually recognized and also receive certificates of achievement and a special gift during the celebration.
From more than 1,500 applicants, Dunkin’ and Scholarship America selected 25 students to receive an academic scholarship to an accredited two or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school of their choice for fall 2020. 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.
