For college student Brandy Zapata, Kentucky Fried Chicken means more than finger-lickin' goodness. Winning a KFC scholarship can have more benefits than just paying for school. For Zapata, the Colonel's Scholars program offered her a chance to travel the world on a KFC scholarship.

Her journey began In 2007 when she started working on her scholarship application plan.

"I applied for around 30 to 40 scholarships my senior year of high school and one of those happened to be the KFC scholarship," said Zapata. She'd been researching scholarships on the internet, doing Google searches on corporations she thought might offer them. By luck, she stumbled upon KFC. "It was one of the few that was a general scholarship and based its selections on academics," she said.
