Coca-Cola Merit Scholarships awarded

Coca-Cola Merit Scholarships have been awarded to 159 children and dependents of benefits-eligible KU faculty and staff, including KU affiliates. Last year, 190 students received awards.

Incoming freshmen who qualify receive $1,000 awards. Returning students receive $1,000, $750, $500 or $250, depending on grade point averages.

To be eligible, incoming freshmen must have a minimum composite ACT score of 24 and a 2.5 grade point average, or an ACT score of 21 and a 3.0 GPA. Scholarship winners must be full-time undergraduate students enrolled in at least 12 credit hours. At least one parent must be a benefits-eligible KU staff member or faculty member.

Children of staff and faculty members of KU affiliates are also eligible to apply. The scholarships are a result of the KU partnership with Coca-Cola, whose funds also help support recycling and student programming on campus.

For more information, contact Kay Salami at 864-5477 or ksalami@ku.edu.
