Tim Tops $1 Million in Scholarships


OAKVILLE, Ont. — Coffee and doughnuts may be what Tim Hortons is best known for, but Canada’s largest restaurant chain is also known for its community focus.  

Once again this year, Tim Hortons is honouring 220 deserving students across Canada and the United States, as recipients of the 2010 Tim Hortons Scholarship Program. Each student will receive $1,000 towards tuition at a post-secondary institution. 
More than $1 million has been disbursed among 1,100 students since the program’s inception six years ago. The program is designed to recognize restaurant team members (as well as their children or grandchildren), who believe in giving back to their community through volunteer work and have plans to pursue post-secondary education.  

“Tim Hortons values our restaurant team members and is delighted to present these outstanding students with a Tim Hortons Scholarship,” said Roland Walton, the company’s Chief Operations Officer. “Our restaurant owners believe in strengthening their local communities and a quality education is a great foundation for building future leaders in our communities.”

“I am extremely appreciative of this scholarship and the wonderful company that it represents,” said Danika Heighes, 2009 scholarship recipient from Kamloops, B.C. “Tim Hortons has been an important part of my life, providing me with my first job, numerous skills that I will always utilize, and an opportunity to enrich my post-secondary education.”

The application process for the 2011 Scholarship Program opens February 2011.
