Making College Possible

Coke Florida Refreshing Minds Scholarship TM

Coca-Cola Beverages Florida, LLC (Coke Florida), Florida's local Coca-Cola bottler, is committed to strengthening the communities they serve. In August 2023, the company introduced the Coke Florida Refreshing Minds Scholarship, a new 10-year, $2.8 million partnership with Florida Prepaid College Foundation. The scholarship will cover tuition and most fees for economically disadvantaged students pursuing higher education at a Florida public four-year university, two-year college, or technical/vocational school.

About the Coke Florida Refreshing Minds Scholarship

Established in 2023, the Coke Florida Refreshing Minds Scholarship℠ is a Florida Prepaid College Plan (meaning it covers tuition and most local fees) funded by Coke Florida and the Florida Prepaid College Foundation’s Path to Prosperity program. This scholarship opportunity is available for eligible Florida students who will attend a Florida public university, college, or technical/vocational school after high school.
