Local New Hampshire Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisees have partnered with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to award one $5,000 scholarship and 11 $2,000 scholarships to local New Hampshire high school seniors, who are enrolling full-time at a four-year, two-year, or technical college.

The $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolling at the Whittemore School of Business at the University of New Hampshire.

Students applying who have at least a 3.25 grade point average and demonstrate substantial volunteer or community service will be given preference for funding. Other factors that will be evaluated include involvement in school activities and paid work experience. Those wishing to apply must send in a completed application, school transcripts, recommendations and financial information to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation by 5 p.m. on April 15. Awards will be announced by the end of April.

Scholarship recipients will be invited by Dunkin’ Donuts to attend a special event to honor their accomplishments at the Manchester Country Club in May.

Applications and further information can be found on the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation website www.nhcf.org. If you have any questions, call the Student Aid Office at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation at 1-800-464-6641.
