Coca-Cola America's Future

Junior Golfers from The First Tee To Attend Coca-Cola America's Future, Sept. 21-24, 2016


Dedicated to impacting communities, The Coca-Cola Company supports The First Tee by offering five participants annually the chance to experience working at one of the largest corporations in the world.

Five semifinalists are selected from an application process to spend two days in the heart of downtown Atlanta visiting the Coca-Cola campus, attending a new-hire training, meeting with executives, and taking part in interviews to determine the winner of a $5,000 scholarship. Four runners-up each receive a $1,000 scholarship. The semifinalists also attend THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola.



Participants at chapters throughout The First Tee network entering their senior year of high school are eligible to apply for the America’s Future Scholarship. Each of the five semi-finalists are selected based on their school grades, involvement in their chapter and community, and an essay on how they live their lives positively. 

The 2016 selected participants will be announced Aug. 10.
