Whataburger cooks up new scholarship fund to support minority students

Now, in addition to feeding their faces with some of the best burgers and fries in Texas, some very good college students will be able to feed their dreams, thanks to San Antonio’s beloved Whataburger chain.

The fast-growing, long-running burger chain, which features a great dedication to the communities in which it does business, has launched a scholarship program that will help minority students initially.

The Whataburger Feeding Student Success Scholarship initiative—part of the series’ signature community program, Feeding Student Success, which aims to remove obstacles to student success—includes a $500,000 commitment to help fund student endeavours at college, university, and nonprofit career schools.

Whataburger says that 100 students in the cities where its restaurants are located will be awarded a non-revolving amount of $5,000 in scholarship money that can be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and housing for the 2022-2023 school year.

Additionally, as part of Whataburger’s recent $1 million commitment to support black and other minority students, it will prioritize these students in the first round of scholarship awards.

Students interested in participating in the scholarship program can apply between now and February 28, 2022, and can get more information about eligibility requirements and the application process on the Whataburger Community Support page through their website.
