FCAHS Senior Named Semifinalist in Coca-Cola Scholars Program

Fox Chapel Area High School senior Rajeev Godse has been selected as a semifinalist for the 2020 class of the Coca-Cola Scholars Program. Rajeev is one of 1,928 high school seniors from across the nation (and one of 80 from Pennsylvania) to be chosen as a semifinalist from more than 93,000 applicants. Students are selected based on their academic excellence, leadership, and service demonstrated in school and community activities.  

Semifinalists will now complete phase two of the application process, which includes essays, recommendations, and transcripts.  An independent selection committee will review the applications and select 250 Regional Finalists by the end of January to participate in online or in-person interviews.  A total of 150 Coca-Cola Scholars will be named in March and will be invited to travel to Atlanta in April for a celebratory banquet and a leadership development institute.

The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation is the largest corporate-sponsored, achievement-based scholarship program in the United States.  With the 2020 class, the foundation will have provided more than $72 million in scholarships over the course of 32 years.
