The KFC Foundation helps employees pursue their dreams of going to college. Apply for scholarships to attend the two- or four-year college, trade school or graduate school of your choice. You can re-apply and potentially win a scholarship year after year. Scholarship recipients also have access to a mentorship program, where they are thoughtfully paired with a mentor based on their major or interests, to help support them as they navigate college, career choices and more.
To be eligible for the KFC Foundation Scholarships, applicants must: have graduated from high school, earned their high school equivalency/GED or will graduate from high school in May; be enrolled in an accredited trade school, college or graduate school for the fall; have a 2.5 GPA (if applying for the $5,000 or $2,500 scholarship) or a 3.5 GPA (if applying for the $20,000 scholarship); and be a KFC employee in good standing and be participating in the KFC Foundation’s Franchise Donation Program.
