Description: The Burger King Scholars program assists employees, employees' spouses or domestic partners, employees' children and high school seniors in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada in continuing their education.

Integrity, high standards, entrepreneurial spirit, good citizenship and education were the values that defined Burger King co-founder James W. McLamore. It was those values that helped realize a dream and it is those same values that are the core of the Burger King McLamore Foundation, which will continue to build on his legacy and his commitment to education.
