Connecticut Dunkin' Scholarship Program

Connecticut Dunkin’ Scholarship Program has been established to recognize the importance of education and provide support to our extended Dunkin’ family.

Dunkin’ Brands scholarships are administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age,  gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants of the Connecticut Dunkin’ Scholarship Program award must be:

  • Full- or part-time Dunkin’ employees who work in stores in the Hartford DMA (which is all of Connecticut) excluding Fairfield County.
  • High school seniors, graduates or current college undergraduates who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university of vocational-technical school in the fall 2020 for the entire academic year.
  • Have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent).

Franchise owners and their dependents are not eligible.


Up to 10 awards of $1,000 will be granted. Awards are one time and not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year provided they meet the eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of education and career goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.

Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Dunkin’ Brands play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.


Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
