The application for the 2021 – 2022 academic year is open. Please take note of scholarship application deadline dates!

To apply for a scholarship, you may:

  • Be a new or returning student
  • Be a full time or part time student
  • Reside in or out of district
  • Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (while this is highly encouraged, it is not required to apply for KCC Foundation scholarships.)

To apply for a scholarship, you must:

  • Have an Admission Application on file with the KCC Admissions Office (be sure to allow the Admissions office a few days to process Admission application).  A KCC ID number is required to submit a scholarship application.
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (some scholarships require a GPA of higher than 2.0.)
    • If you have below a 2.0 GPA, you may be considered for scholarships if you have a letter of recommendation from a KCC Faculty member, counselor, or Financial Aid staff member.

The scholarship application for the 2021-2022 academic year is open.  Here is the application process:

  • Visit this site to apply.
  • Once completed with your application, click submit at the bottom and make sure your application was completed. This will submit your application to all the scholarship opportunities that you are eligible for.
  • Click the Opportunities tab at the top and see if there are any additional recommended scholarships. If there are, complete those additional questions to be considered for even more scholarships.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please call 269-965-4161, email to kccfoundation@kellogg.edu  or this student scholarship FAQ may help answer your questions.  This FAQ is available in Spanish and in Burmese.

Each application is reviewed and scored by members of a scholarship team consisting of KCC faculty, staff, retirees and volunteers. Scholarship awards are based, in part, on the application score, so applicants are encouraged to submit a complete and thorough application. Incomplete applications may not be considered for scholarships.

Applicants will be considered for all KCC Foundation scholarships, especially those most aligned with their career and academic goals, and meet the criteria established by the scholarship donors. Meeting the application requirements and scholarship criteria does not guarantee you will receive a scholarship.

Scholarship awards will be credited to the student’s financial aid account and can be used for tuition, fees, books, and (in some instances, required course supplies)

Unused awards will not be refunded. KCC employees, spouses and dependents are not eligible.
