Refreshment Services Pepsi Scholarship Program
Financial assistance to pay Kroc Center membership fees is available through a "scholarship" program funded by Refreshment Services Pepsi of Quincy and other donors.
The program is funded through an endowment, which was established through a generous donation from Refreshment Services Pepsi and continues to grow through private donations and fundraising efforts in our community.
How to Apply
You can pick up a scholarship application from the Kroc Center (405 Vermont Street) or download one here. Scholarship applications must be submitted in person at the Kroc Center. No application will be processed unless it is completely filled out with income verification attached.
How is the scholarship award determined for each individual? Awards are based on several different factors. Income, membership type, when the application was received and funds available. Each application is looked at thoroughly to make sure the proper amount is awarded. We award 25, 50 and 75 percent scholarships. There are no full scholarships awarded.
The day your complete application is turned in, it gets processed. If we have scholarships available you will be notified within 48 hours. If you are placed on a waiting list, you will be notified at least two weeks before you can redeem your scholarship.
Income verification is required. A tax return from the previous year is ideal documentation for income verification. We also accept social security award letters, pay check stubs, or anything that would show your income on a monthly/yearly basis.
