New for 2019, Dunkin’s Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program was open to current part-time and full-time undergraduate students and high school seniors. 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.

To date, the Dunkin’ Philadelphia Regional Scholarship Program has awarded $400,000 in scholarships to 250 outstanding high school seniors and college students. The program was founded in 2009 by Dunkin’s Philadelphia-area franchisees as a way to ease the financial burden of college for students throughout the region.

“On behalf of my fellow franchisees, we are honored to award these exceptional students with the 2019 Dunkin’ Regional Scholarships,” said Perry Shah, local Dunkin’ franchisee and Philadelphia regional advertising committee chairman. “As we celebrate the scholarship program’s tenth anniversary, we are so proud to see it continue to grow and support students here in our local communities. We are honored to have the opportunity to further students’ educational goals and look forward to the amazing achievements these future leaders will accomplish.”
