The Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team recognizes high achieving two-year college students who demonstrate academic excellence and intellectual rigor combined with leadership and service that extends their education beyond the classroom to benefit society.
Fifty students will be named Gold Scholars, each receiving $1,500 scholarships; fifty students will be named Silver Scholars, each receiving $1,250 scholarships; and fifty students will be named Bronze Scholars, each receiving $1,000 scholarships. A state may have multiple Gold, Silver or Bronze Scholars. The program awards $187,500 in scholarships annually.
To be eligible for this program, students must submit an application for the All-USA Community College Academic Team and be selected as a nominee by their college. The application process opens in October and applications are due in early December each year.
An independent team of judges reviews the applications to determine scholarship recipients. Phi Theta Kappa notifies students selected as team members in March each year.
The Coca-Cola Community College Academic Team is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation.
