"I am incredibly thankful to be selected as a 2014 Tim Hortons scholarship recipient,” remarked Peiyi Liang at the local Tim Hortons restaurant on August 13th, 2014. “Earning this scholarship will lessen the burden that comes along with paying for post-secondary tuition, and as well, further motivate me to pursue academic excellence. I am proud to have worked for a company that not only provides support for student employees, but all employees who have children or grandchildren working towards a higher education. Thank you for this opportunity."

Peiyi Liang of Wetaskiwin is the latest recipient of a $1,000 Tim Hortons Scholarship, awarded for her commitment to giving back to the community. The Team Tim Hortons Scholarship 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. Entering its tenth year, the successful program has already helped more than seventeen hundred students across Canada and the United States with more than $1.9 million awarded so far in scholarships.

This year another $220,000 will be distributed among 220 deserving students.

Tim Hortons’ owner, Donna Paul, is pleased one of her employees qualified for the scholarship. “We are delighted to present Peiyi with the 2014 Team Tim Hortons Scholarship. We are proud of her commitment to this community and the desire to pursue post-secondary education. We are happy that Tim Hortons can help Peiyi fulfill her future goals and wish her much success.”

Tim Hortons is committed to enriching the lives of its valued team members through a number of ‘Team Tim Hortons’ initiatives. The application process for the 2015/2016 school year will open in February 2015. Further information on Team Tim Hortons’ initiatives, application requirements and photos of the 2014 scholarship recipients are available at www.timhortons.com.
