Chick-fil-A Community Scholars

Every year, twelve (12) $25,000 scholarships will be awarded to students based on academic success, community service and financial need. Selected Community Scholars will also be invited to participate in the Chick-fil-A Scholars Program, an optional one-year engagement that includes mentoring and leadership development alongside our Chick-fil-A True Inspiration Scholars.Through this program, we will recognize remarkable individuals who share our dedication to caring for others and caring for their communities. It is our pleasure to support the academic journeys of these future leaders.
