Congratulations to Neil Deshmukh '20, who was recently named a 2020 Coca-Cola Scholar! For this accomplishment, Neil will receive a $20,000 college scholarship and join a family of 6,300+ alumni who are leading positive change in their communities and around the world.

Neil was selected from an initial pool of 93,075 applications from across the country for exemplifying superior leadership, service, and academics. Only 150 students, less than 1/6th of 1% of applicants, were chosen to receive this extremely competitive award.

With the addition of the 2020 class, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation will have provided more than 6,300 Coke Scholars nationwide with over $72 million in scholarships over the course of 32 years.
