I am very interested in this scholarship mainly because I could really benefit from the financial aid. College has always been a dream of mine but the reality is, it's incredibly expensive since I am applying out of state. Plus the opportunity is presenting itself so I dare not pass it up. I'm also a high school senior who is eager to see what the next chapter of my life, in college, is going to be; so, having some financial assistance would help me tremendously!

Naomi D.  on 1/31/2021 8:22:45 PM

I would love to receive this scholarship to help further my education. It would mean a lot to me if I got this scholarship. Though I have had complications applying for the scholarships

Laila G  on 1/29/2021 1:39:08 PM

I am in need of this scholarship because both my parents are disabled and not able to help with the payment process. All I want to do is go to school get a good job when I come out and give me and my parents the life we deserve. I just need this money to do that

Emily B  on 1/26/2021 8:13:34 AM

Hello, I'm Emily and I'm a high school senior preparing for college. My grandparents, who have been financially and emotionally supporting my education since I was a baby, have both lost their jobs this year, making the possibility of going to one of my dream colleges harder to achieve. Graciously, they are offering a large portion of their savings, but I want to help them out as much as I can. I have been working hard academically and in my community, maintaining a high GPA and becoming a member of NHS. I am also a House President and have other leadership positions. In my future, I plan to graduate at the top of my class and pursue a career as a pediatrician. Any sort of assistance I can get is helpful, and if the Burger King Scholars Program is willing to invest in me, then I won't put their generosity, or their faith, to waste. Thank you.

Timmy M  on 1/25/2021 8:52:52 PM

I am interested in this scholarship because I work 3 jobs alone and have never been one to ask for money from my parents I feel they work very hard for what they have and I shouldn’t have to ask for help to further my education.

Laurie L  on 1/20/2021 8:27:27 AM

I am a high school student with a GPA of around 3.6 ( 90.67 on a 100 point scale ). I will be attending NYU which is known for being notoriously expensive. My parents will be working hard and breaking their backs to provide me with an education that can potentially break our generational curse of having insufficient funds for living. I want to be able to lift my family up. I will be working alongside my parents to help fund my tuition as well. I look forward to this scholarship as it will help raise stress off my shoulder.s

Caroline C.  on 1/12/2021 12:29:01 PM

I am interested in this scholarship because it will provide financial assistance to attend college. I work hard, but the additional funds would help me pursue my dreams of obtaining a college education.

Renee M.  on 1/8/2021 12:12:29 PM

I am interested in this scholarship because it will provide some financial assistance to attend the college of my dreams, which is Salve University. My family is able to help me, but your additional funds would help me to study Biochemistry.

Evan E  on 1/6/2021 11:33:06 AM

I am a high school student who has spent his senior year trying to make the best of sports and school during this pandemic. I am also the eldest child of three raised by my mom alone after her divorce when I was six. I plan on going to our local university (Youngstown State) and majoring in Respiratory Care (RT) which would give me a Bachelor's Degree in Science. I feel that there will be a need for Respiratory Therapists to care for survivors of Covid-19 in the years to come. Any help I can get through grants, scholarships, etc. would be helpful! My mom has worked tirelessly to support me through my years of school, I'd like to contribute and support her in return.

David P.  on 12/30/2020 7:15:45 PM

I am interested in this scholarship because it will provide financial assistance to attend college. My parents work hard but the additional funds would help me pursue my dreams of obtaining a college education.

Isyss Lyons  on 12/20/2020 9:47:46 PM

I am a high student who is graduating this year. I really want to attend GSU when I graduate and this scholarship would really help lift a financial burden off of my family when it comes to paying for my tuition. I plan on studying pediatric neurology. Please consider me for this scholarship. I could really use it to help me towards my dream career.

Amari Singh  on 12/16/2020 12:58:41 PM

I Am a high school senior with a 3.6 GPA, I play to go to college to be a nurse. I was accepted to The university of mary Hardin-Baylor. I have 7 siblings and don’t have much of any college funds. I would like this scholarship to help pay for college.

Krishelle T.  on 12/14/2020 8:51:00 PM

I am currently a senior in high school with a 3.5 GPA and I stand on maintaining that. My dream school is to apply to FAMU and I also want to become an entrepreneur in the future and own my own business.

Christina T  on 12/4/2020 1:19:44 PM

I am a high school senior with a 3.7 GPA and have big plans for my future. So far my plan is to attend Arizona State University majoring in the field of Chemistry and to prepare myself to become a commissioned officer in the United States Navy through the Navy Recruit Officer Training Corp Program that is provided. My biggest issue with college is where my family and I will get the money to pay for it. I have a twin sister who is just as smart, if not smarter than I am, and that means my family will be paying for two people to go to college at the same time. If I could get this scholarship it could help my family and I pay for some out of the many expenses to come. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Jayla J  on 12/4/2020 12:07:11 PM

Katherine E  on 12/3/2020 10:52:47 AM

Hi, I’m Katherine a senior in my local high school. It’s very exciting to hear that a restaurant like Burger King is giving back to all the communities. I’ve even applied to a Burger King, unfortunately I never heard back. As to my career, I want to become an anesthesiologist at FIU and become top of my class. Also, learn leadership and motivation skills for others like me. This money would really help with the long career I have ahead of me. I envision me studying my anesthesia notes and eating on a big whopper. I love your food btw!

Lindy H  on 12/1/2020 2:12:15 PM

I am currently a high school student about to embark on the next part of my journey into undergrad. I've been accepted and would love to attend Baylor University in Waco to begin my career interest in genetics. Baylor University is a private university and expensive. Having any amount of money would be a gracious amount of help.

Danielle L  on 11/12/2020 7:51:11 AM

I am currently a senior in High School with a 3.9 GPA. I will be the first in my family to pursue a secondary education. Attending college is important for me because I want to be the first in my family line to start the tradition of attending college and earning a degree. I do not come from a wealthy family. So in order to attend college with out taking out a loan I am beginning my journey of filling scholarship's to pay my way through school.

Kristen C  on 11/10/2020 11:16:24 PM

Reasoning why I applied for this scholarship is to that fact of me being a terrible daughter. Yup I said it. My mother is a single mom who provides for me and my 2 brothers she pays for my school, my car, and my shelter. She just ask me to do the Financial aid things and I forget but I just forget how much it hurts her financially but I openly deserve to be called a terrible daughter but that’s why I am applying at 12:26 am in Miami Florida.

Keyara S  on 10/28/2020 8:46:19 PM

Hello! I’m a senior in high school. I plan on attending WKU, I want to attend but I know that I want to major in Biology to go into a Optometry profession.

Summer S  on 9/2/2020 7:29:29 PM

I want to attend OCC for my general classes that way I can earn my associates degree. I want to become a plastic surgeon so I need all the help I can get when it comes to being able to afford to attend a medical school. That is also why after I complete my general classes at OCC, I would very much like to transfer to a medical school to pursue my career. I am applying for this scholarship because it will help me pay for school and succeed in the career that I want. I have always loved helping others and putting others lives before mine. That is why I feel that I would succeed in the medical field. I am involved in my high school. I have entered a few marketing and business competitions, and have received many awards. I have helped with charities and food drives to help raise money for people in need. I have done food drives with my family outside of school also. I just really love to help others. Also during this time, COVID-19 hit my family hard. My mom is a nurse at a local nursing home, so I was always afraid she would catch the virus, but she was always afraid that if she caught it, she would give it to me. She would ask me every night to unlock the side door and hang up a trash bag on the door handle so that she could place her scrubs in the bag and quickly take them downstairs to wash them. Sometimes I got afraid that she had caught the virus, so I would make her food and place it on the bottom step to her bedroom just so that she could eat and we could keep each other safe. But even though she was scared of catching the virus, she still went to work and helped patients survive. She inspires me each and every day to want to help people like she does. So being accepted for this scholarship would help me become the amazing person my mom is today. We need more people like her in the world.

Saige L.  on 8/9/2020 6:33:45 PM

I am really excited to go to college, but, like most soon-to-be college freshman, am very nervous about tuition. I will soon be attending BYU Hawaii and majoring in elementary education. I cant wait to work at an elementary school teaching and changing children's lives!

Vamsi Vanguri  on 8/2/2020 6:05:07 PM

Thank you for doing this for the community. Such scholarships help kids like me to dream big and achieve our dreams. I am an undergraduate student in University of Cincinnati studying to be a doctor. My parents help me with the expenses quite a bit. They are immigrants from Indai who are the hardest working folks that I know of. I am on the dean's list and copntinue to provide back to the community at various levels whenver possible. Any scholarship funding will greatly aid me in soaring and I can set an example for my little brother who just got into high school. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Deeply appreciate it.

Courtney T  on 7/28/2020 9:06:27 PM

I am currently a senior in High School and I plan on attending MSU to pursue a degree in Pediatric Speech Pathology. Helping people has always been something I loved and helping kids is even better. I would like to be picked for this scholarship because college is expensive and I do not want to graduate college with tons of student debt.

Meryem A  on 6/28/2020 3:54:20 PM

I am planning on going to Farmingdale state college. because of my major, I have very few schools to pick from and it is hard and stressful. I want to be a commercial piolet. in Farmingdale ill be studying aviation but it is a very expensive major to do. My family unforcedly doesn't have the money to support me financially right now and I need some hope to fight for my dreams.

Naveen.S  on 6/25/2020 12:38:44 PM

My name is Naveen Sayeeram and I am entering into my sophomore year at York University. I am currently studying in the faculty of engineering with the goal of becoming an aircraft engineer and working for companies such as boeing, Airbus and Lockheed Martin. This year I will be choosing my major in engineering, so my main goal is to finish my undergrad as a mechanical engineer and later specialize as an aircraft engineer during my graduate studies. I did not always dream of becoming an aircraft engineer, however everything changed at the age of 14 when I was at the airport, during my time at the airport I was purely dazzled when I saw the aircrafts landing and taking off , it was truly amazing to watch. Later during my junior high school days I got even more fond of aircrafts and I was even into an aircraft geek at that point in time. Now fastforwarding all the way to my university year currently I easily passed all my courses in first with flying colours and due to that I have gotten some scholarships for my second year. Although, in the second year the course load is even higher than first year and along with that so are the tuition fees and I cannot expect the scholarships that I get will cover all the expenses. My household has my dad as the only person working and most of his salary goes towards our house rent, car services and groceries due to this reason I cannot expect my dad to contribute towards my college fees. The only option I have is this scholarship which would really help me finish my engineering degree successfully and lead me to my path of becoming an aircraft engineer.

Jacob R  on 6/13/2020 10:41:03 AM

Any money I am able to receive to help me pay for college is a great. It would help my parents out tremendously.

Stephen Jones  on 5/29/2020 7:51:20 PM

I am a sophomore at Gordon State College pursing my associates in engineering and I have been in honor societies such as: National Society of Leadership and Success, Phi Theta Kappa, and National Society of High School Scholars. I have been in clubs such as: African American Male Initiative, Student African American Brotherhood, and Toastmasters International. Currently I am the president of toastmasters and I have hosted events such as: Halloween Game Night, Thankful Toast Event, and Meditation for final exams. I have also managed a club executive board and was able to lead and inspire other members in the group to challenge themselves to become more effective leaders. I have attended the District 14 Toastmasters Conference “Illuminate your Path”, the National Society of Leadership and Success Leadership Summit at Azusa Pacific University-Azusa, California, and Southern Collegiate Leadership Conference at Georgia Southern University. I had a embedded honors project where I developed an idea for a fully autonomous electric car by producing drawings, 3D model car, and purposeful use of script. I have also done the Community Impact Competition where my team placed first place in introducing an idea called “Adopt-A-Student.” Adopt a Student is a program that is focused on students with housing insecurities. Connect students with families to support their financial needs. Earned first place out of eight schools in University System of Georgia. I also plan on getting my bachelors of science in Mechatronics engineering at Kennesaw State University.

Andrea H  on 12/29/2019 9:49:07 PM

I plan on attending Alverno college to obtain my BSN. I want to have an excellent career and job, not only to have a good future, but to also give back to all those who've helped me along my journey and many more. I plan on using the money to help pay for my college expenses. I know my parents can only help me so much. My parents grew up in Mexico and they both came from very poor families. Our family is humble. Everything we have came with a sacrifice. They have taught me to be diligent and a hard-worker. I do not take anything for granted. And I look up to my parents a lot, their impact is profound, I seek their guidance and I hope to make them proud. I want to use this money to advance my medical education. With the education I receive, I will go on to help many people and make a difference in their lives.

lianne swanson  on 10/3/2019 12:02:22 PM

I know it says you have to be a high school senior but I'm not and I'm already enrolled into a diesel technical school. I'm straight A student and it'd be great if I could sign up for this. Could that be possible?

Christine G.  on 8/21/2019 5:42:30 AM

is this scholarship only available for students living in US?

Delia M  on 1/3/2012 10:24:48 AM

Yes,? because I would like to earn money, so I can pay for my financial needs in college.

Avoid Student Debt at Colleges with No Student Loans

February 25, 2021

by Izzy Hall
