The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation recently announced that over 20 Indian American students were among their 150 2015 Coca-Cola Scholars, each of whom will receive a $20,000 scholarship to the college or university of their choice.
For more than a quarter of a century, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation has invested in students who have shown leadership potential, not only in academics, but most importantly, in dedication and actions that positively impact others.
What these students have in common is a passion for service that was developed at an early age and continued throughout their college and professional careers.
