[September 11, 2008]  It pays to work at Culver's restaurants. Kristen Marten, Zach Langley and Dustin Eimer, all student team members at Culver's of Lincoln, were recently awarded scholarships from the Culver's VIP Foundation Scholarship Fund. Awarding its one millionth dollar in 2008, Culver's has been doing it right for the past 15 years for more than 1,000 team members pursuing higher education.

Restaurant"We're very proud of Kristen, Zach and Dustin for their hard work and dedication to expanding their knowledge through education," said Elaine Aue, owner of Culver's of Lincoln. "We're thrilled to be able to support three of our hardworking members of the Culver's team."

This year Culver's awarded $216,000 in scholarships to nearly 200 student team members during its annual scholarship reception in Madison, Wis. Recipients were awarded $1,000 to $2,500 scholarships thanks to the generosity of Culver's franchise partners, suppliers and Culver Franchising System Inc. More than 100 restaurants and their team members from 13 states were represented in this year's program.

"Offering financial support to our talented young team members enables them to change their lives and their communities through education," explains Lea Culver, Culver's co-founder and executive director of the scholarship fund. "Culver's is often the first employer for many young people, and we view this scholarship program as an investment in our future leaders and the advancement of the local communities where Culver's operates."

This is the 15th consecutive year Culver's has awarded scholarships for a combined total of more than $1,100,000. Started in 1993 with a single $500 scholarship, Culver's scholarship fund honors and rewards Culver's team members who are committed to continuing their education while working at Culver's.
