As the maker of America’s favorite snacks, Frito-Lay is on a mission to create more smiles and a brighter future with every bite. The Community Builder scholarship program was established to assist students who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Drawing on years of commitment to communities across the country, Frito-Lay is looking to support students who are giving back in their own communities and helping to lead us all to a brighter future.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
