Field of Study and Special Criteria Scholarships

The KCC Foundation is accepting scholarship applications for Fall 2022-Spring 2023. The priority deadline for application submission was March 1, 2022; Applications are still being accepted through July 31, 2022.

The KCC Foundation provides scholarship assistance to Kellogg Community College students through a variety of field of study and special criteria  scholarship funds. These annual scholarships are available to KCC students based on financial need, academic achievement, donor-specified criteria and/or field of study. All scholarship applications are reviewed and scored by a scholarship team of faculty, staff, retirees, and volunteers and are given equal consideration.

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 (if a new student, be sure to allow Admissions a few days to process application). A KCC ID number is required to submit a scholarship application. If you are a dual enrolled student, you will need to apply for Admission to KCC.
  • 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 2022-2023 academic year opened on December 13, 2021; the priority deadline for most scholarships was March 1, 2022 by midnight.  The extended deadline will be July 31, 2022, at which time the application will close.

  • Visit Academic Works 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.

General scholarships are awarded on a year-to-year basis. Students must re-apply every year by submitting a new application.
