Illuminating the minds of students through academic excellence and mentorship...

The Wendy's & Coca Cola "Bright Minds, Bright Future Scholarship Program," was established in 1997. Through this inspiring initiative Wendy's and Coca Cola are able to consistently invest in the education and mentorship of some of our country's most talented, and brightest young leaders.

Every other year, the program is open to 6th grade students currently graduating from a local Government Primary School. Up to four qualifying students receive a full 6-year scholarship to attend a participating private High School in Nassau or Freeport, along with an annual book allowance. Over the years, the program has produced dozens of outstanding young scholars, many of whom have journeyed on to obtain high level college degrees, and embarked on professional careers in the Bahamas.

The Wendy’s & Coca Cola "Bright Minds, Bright Future Scholarship Program" is committed to helping children realize and reach their fullest potential, through mentorship, nurturing, and the pursuit of academic excellence. Applicants are selected based on academic performance (3.0+GPA) , individual financial need, involvement in community and/or civic service, extra curricular activities, and overall leadership potential.

The next intake for scholarship applications is September 2016. All applications must be completed and submitted with ALL supporting documentation by Friday, April 29th at 5:00PM, with no exceptions. Incomplete and/or late applications will not be considered.

What Bright Mind, Bright Future Scholars Say...

“ They have enabled me to have a lease on life and a better education than I ever dreamt.” – Van Johnson

“ One of the major things I had hoped to accomplish being a part of the scholarship program is to be a testimony to all public school students whose heart’s desire is to attend a private institution and unfortunately are not financially able to do so." - Schicquelle Johnson
