KFC Colonel’s Twitter Scholarship

KFC Colonel’s Twitter Scholarship

We have started to see several scholarships utilize Twitter as part of their programs.  Today’s scholarship, the KFC Colonel’s Twitter Scholarship is one of these scholarships.  This scholarship is worth $20,000 and simply asks prospective college students to “tweet a photo that illustrates why they exemplify Colonel Sanders’ commitment to education and enriching their communities, and why they are deserving of a college scholarships.”

The $20,000 is spread over four years (so the winning student will receive $5,000 per year).  Students must also use the scholarship award towards pursuing a bachelor’s degree at a public university in their home state!

The scholarship is pretty straightforward–students have until December 13 to follow KFC on Twitter (@KFC_Colonel) and submit their application (a tweeted photograph) with the hashtag #KFCScholar.

Scholarships will be reviewed until December 15 when a winner will be announced!  Pretty simple way to get $20,000 for your college education!
