We know you have questions. We (think we) have the answers.
Below are questions we get most often from Chick-fil-A Team Members (and potential Team Members). If you have a question that isn’t answered here, your local Chick-fil-A Operator will be happy to help. Or, you can reach out Scholarship America, Chick-fil-A’s scholarship partner, at 1-800-553-0030 or email@example.com.
How do I apply for the Remarkable Futures Scholarships?
Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are now closed. The application for the 2020-2021 academic year will open this fall. Team Members can apply for a Remarkable Futures Scholarship on cfa.scholarsapply.org. All Team Members have access to the Tuition Reduction Network throughout the year.
What types of scholarships are there?
Chick-fil-A awards two types of scholarships: True Inspiration Scholarship ($25,000) and Leadership Scholarship ($2,500). Learn more.
Who is eligible to apply?
You are eligible to apply if you:
• Are employed as a Chick-fil-A Team Member at the time of application and award
• Have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale
• Will enroll in an accredited postsecondary institution for the upcoming academic year
View the full eligibility requirements.
If I want to apply for both the Leadership Scholarship and True Inspiration Scholarship, do I need to fill out two applications?
Nope, Team Members only need to complete one application. Recipients will be chosen for each scholarship based on our eligibility requirements.
Will all applicants be recipients?
Not all applicants will meet the eligibility requirements to receive a scholarship; however, all Team Members have access to the Tuition Reduction Network throughout the year.
If I am not a True Inspiration Scholarship recipient, does that mean I did not receive a scholarship?
Not necessarily. By March 11, Team Members who applied for a scholarship for the 2019-2020 academic year will learn if they are recipients of the $2,500 Leadership Scholarship.
Will scholarships be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis?
No. All scholarship applications will be reviewed and graded on each of the eligibility requirements.
I am still in high school. Can I apply?
Yes! Team Members still in high school are eligible if they will be dual-enrolled or enrolling full-time at a postsecondary institution for the upcoming academic year.
What about grad school? Can I apply, too?
Yes! Same as above.
How many hours of community service do I need?
There is not a specific requirement for hours, but Team Members need to have participated in community service during the twelve months prior to applying. The level of community service will be evaluated and considered, along with other requirements.
If I am selected as a recipient, how can I use my award?
Awards can be used for tuition, fees, books and educational related expenses incurred at the school. Scholarship checks are made payable to the school and cannot be applied toward student loans or refunded to students.
I am uncertain of what school I will be attending for the upcoming academic year. Can I still apply?
Absolutely! When filling out the application, simply enter the school you think you will be attending. Once recipients are selected, school choices can be changed.
