The REACH Educational Grant Program helps employees at participating KFC U.S. restaurants pursue their dreams of going to college. Employees of any age, any position, pursuing any degree can receive money to help them attend the accredited four-year or two-year college of their choice. The money can also be used at trade/vocational schools and for graduate study.
KFC Restaurant General Managers, Assistant Managers, Shift Supervisors and Team Members may apply for college tuition assistance funds. Managers who are selected will receive $3,000 for the academic year; previous REACH Grant recipients receive $2,500 and first-time winners receive $2,000. Employee-students can reapply for the money each year.
