Graduating high school seniors within the Kellogg Community College district are eligible to participate in the Board of Trustees Scholarship Program. This Scholarship Program is a unique, cohort-based program that supports your academic endeavors while also providing customized leadership and development experiences paired with individualized connections with KCC faculty and staff.

The Board of Trustees Scholarship Program also awards up to $3,500 for one academic year and can be renewed for a second year at KCC if recipient maintains program eligibility and scholarship responsibilities (see below). Acceptance of this scholarship nullifies all other scholarship offers from the KCC Foundation. 

Board of Trustees Scholarship Responsibilities

All scholarships are given equal consideration by a scholarship committee appointed by the KCC Foundation. This committee will review the applicant’s academic records, school and community service activities, and volunteer experiences. They may also choose to conduct personal interviews. At the completion of the review process, the committee will nominate one graduating senior from each eligible high school. Financial need is not a criterion for the Board of Trustees Scholarship. 

Applicant must:

  • Have an Admission Application on file with the KCC Admissions Office (be sure to allow a few days for Admissions to process the application). A KCC ID number is required to submit a scholarship application. If you are currently a dual enrolled student, you will need to apply for Admission to KCC.
