Celebrating our 2022 winners

Since the early 1970s, Chick-fil-A has awarded deserving Team Members across the country with scholarship funds to help them pursue their dreams of a remarkable future. And 2022 is no different. We’re excited to introduce this year’s Remarkable Future Scholarship winners. In addition to receiving $25,000 scholarships, these scholars will join a 12-month leadership development program and will become official Chick-fil-A Scholar Alumnae.

A surprise for Team Members

This year, Chick-fil-A awarded 12,699 Team Members with scholarships. Twelve of those Team Members got an extra special surprise. We told them that they were invited to the Chick-fil-A Support Center to be part of a restaurant uniform test; Instead, we surprised them with life-changing scholarships of $25,000 per person.

True Inspiration™ Scholarship winners

These twelve deserving Team Members are truly amazing. Through their dedication and hard work in school, in the restaurant and in the community, they were chosen as the winners of the 2022 Remarkable Futures Scholarship. Chick-fil-A Operators, Interim Managers or Executive General Managers recommended each nominee, and Scholarship America and an external committee of educators, entrepreneurs and executives chose the final winners. Congratulations to this year’s scholars!
