McDonald's USA National Employee Scholarship Program

The McDonald's National Employee Scholarship Program is one of many examples of McDonald's commitment to employee development and opportunity. The program recognizes and rewards the accomplishments of McDonald's student-employees who excel in their studies, serve their communities, and work hard to deliver an outstanding experience for our customers.


Every academic year, the McDonald's National Employee Scholarship Program selects one outstanding student-employee from each state and the District of Columbia to receive a $2,500 scholarship. In addition, the student-employee judged to demonstrate the highest commitment to school, work, and community service is selected to receive a special honor. He or she is named the "McScholar of the Year" and is awarded a $5,000 scholarship.

Scholarship winners may use their awards at any qualifying institution and for any field of study they choose.

The McDonald's National Employee Scholarship Program recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding students in the course of their employment at McDonald's. The following eligibility requirements apply for this program:
