KCC Foundation Scholarships

Applications for Fall 2022 -Spring 2023 will open up in mid-December 2021

Welcome to Kellogg Community College! Whether you are working toward an associate degree, certificate, or transfer credits, KCC offers programs and scholarships designed to help you succeed. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please read the information on this page and in the links below. Application deadline dates vary. The majority of scholarship funds are awarded during the Spring prior to the start of a new academic year.  Therefore, funds may be limited or not available for summer semester or at other times in the year.

A variety of scholarships are available through the KCC Foundation to students based on financial need, academic achievement and/or field of study. These scholarships are funded by generous contributions from individuals, businesses and organizations. Scholarships provide varying amounts of financial support.  

Please note: dependents of KCC employees are not eligible for Gold Key, Board of Trustees, or General KCC Foundation Scholarships.
