KCC Foundation

The KCC Foundation provides scholarship assistance to Kellogg Community College students. A variety of Foundation scholarships are available based on financial need and/or academic achievement and/or field of study. All scholarship applications are given equal consideration by a scholarship committee appointed by the KCC Foundation. Scholarship committees will make the final determination of scholarship awards by matching students with specific criteria.
