Board of Trustees Scholarships

Graduating high school seniors within the Kellogg Community College district are eligible to receive the Board of Trustees Scholarship. 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. 

The Board of Trustees Scholarship 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. Acceptance of this scholarship nullifies all other scholarship offers from the KCC Foundation.

  • 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.
