Dunkin’ of the DMV Awards Local Maryland Students with Academic Scholarships

August 2, 2022

Dunkin’ and its DMV franchisees launched their inaugural Dunkin’ Regional Scholarship Program this past spring, which awarded $100,000 in academic scholarships to high school and college students throughout the DMV.

In partnership with Scholarship America, Dunkin’ yesterday awarded 40 students throughout the DMV region with a $2,500 academic scholarship to an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school of their choice in Fall 2022. Dunkin’s DMV Regional Scholarship Program accommodates current part-time and full-time undergraduate students and high school seniors who were selected based on their academic record, demonstrated leadership skills and overall commitment to their school and local community.

The goal of the regional scholarship program is to recognize hardworking students in the DMV and to help ease the financial burden of pursuing higher education. This year marks the debut of Dunkin’s Regional Scholarship Program to financially support deserving students in our local community.

“On behalf of my fellow DMV-area franchisees, we feel honored to award these 40 commendable students with the 2022 Dunkin’ DMV Regional Scholarships,” said Maria Icaza, D.C.-area Dunkin’ franchisee. “We seek to further students’ educational goals as a part of our commitment to support our local communities beyond our restaurant doors.”
