Scholarship grants range from $1,000 to $50,000, and are intended to help students offset the cost of attending college or post-secondary vocational/technical school. Recipients are selected based on their grade point average, work experience, extracurricular activities and/or community service.
Scholarships are funded directly by the BURGER KING McLAMORESM Foundation and are made possible thanks to our generous donors, including BK® employees, franchisees, vendors and guests. Our largest annual fundraiser is the Fall Fundraiser in-restaurant promotion. Every dollar raised through this campaign is used to fund scholarships. Each year we inch closer to our goal of granting one $1,000 scholarship for every BK® restaurant in North America.

The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program provides eight semesters of full tuition, room and board, and mandatory fees for Scholars at Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. Scholars also have access to generous funding for up to three summer experiences.
The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program is the only scholarship in the country that offers students access to the resources of two of the most highly regarded universities in the world - Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Although Robertson Scholars matriculate to only one university, they receive student privileges at both, including opportunities to pursue second majors and minors, enroll in courses, and participate in student activities. This unique “dual citizenship” allows Scholars a wide variety of choices throughout their four years.
During the second semester of their sophomore year, Robertson Scholars live and take classes on their sister campus. The Campus Switch is designed to build stronger educational and community ties between UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke, and to offer Scholars the opportunity to adjust to new situations and thrive in challenging environments. During and beyond the Campus Switch, Robertson Scholars serve as ambassadors of cross-campus collaboration and leadership.
Summer experiences are an essential component of the Robertson experience. The program’s unique three-part model (Community, Exploration, Launch) challenges Scholars to pursue both domestic and international experiences, explore and act on individual passions, and step outside of their comfort zone. Year-round, Scholars work closely with the program staff to design, implement, and learn from these meaningful and personally relevant experiences. For details about the goals of each summer experience, see the Program Timeline. For specific examples of Robertson summer experiences, see Scholar Snapshots.
During the academic year, Scholars have the opportunity to participate in programs and activities designed to help them learn new skills, expand their academic and professional networks, and solidify their personal and professional goals. Scholars may apply to participate in a ten-day wilderness expedition led by the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and for Leadership Enhancement and Development (LEAD) grants to fund self-initiated leadership and professional development activities.
Robertson Scholars have a variety of opportunities to form mentoring relationships with faculty and administrators at both universities, as well as with the staff of the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program. Robertson staff members assist Scholars in planning their summer experiences and advise them in their overall leadership and personal development.
The Robertson Scholar community comes together frequently for formal and informal, planned and spontaneous gatherings. Throughout the school year, RSLP hosts scholar dinners, global trends forums, and fireside chats. These events are meant to strengthen the Robertson community and provide Scholars with opportunities to have conversations with renowned leaders and change-makers who are confronting some of the world’s biggest challenges and opportunities. Scholars also actively participate in the recruitment and selection of new Robertson Scholars.

The Johnson Scholarship

Every year Johnson Scholarships are awarded to approximately ten percent of the incoming class.
In addition, Johnson Scholars receive funding in the amount of $7,000 to support summer experiences during their time at Washington and Lee. Internships, volunteer experiences or research projects are just a few of the ways Johnson Scholars may use these funds to explore the world and their own potential for leadership.

The Opportunity to Make a Difference
The Undergraduate Scholar Program was developed, in part, to assist minority and disabled students, but application is open to all students who meet the requirements. The program offers unmatched experience. You'll complete work sessions during each summer break, increasing your knowledge and job responsibilities while assisting intelligence professionals and applying your academic skills.

A finance major could be involved in developing and analyzing budgets for a worldwide operation. A foreign language major might be instrumental in translating documents for US policymakers. As a final example, a human resource major could have the opportunity to develop and implement personnel policies and procedures.
Once selected, you will be given an annual salary; a benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, and retirement; and up to $18,000 per calendar year for tuition, mandatory fees, books and supplies. You'll be required to work at an Agency facility during summer breaks and to maintain full-time college status during the school year with a minimum cumulative 3.0/4.0 GPA. We will pay the cost of transportation between school and the Washington, DC area each summer and provide a housing allowance.
