Institutional Financial Aid

College Funded Work-Study
College funded work-study is part-time temporary employment (15 hours per week) on campus designed for students not eligible for federal assistance. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the application process. A list of job openings can be found at the Student Financial Aid Office.

Performance Grants
Outstanding performance in the areas of athletics, music, journalism, visual art/digital design, debate/forensics and theatre/drama are recognized at KCKCC by awarding students a performance grant. Faculty and coaches from these various departments set the criteria and select the students for awards. Students should contact the awarding department for additional information. Inquiries should be made in advance of the academic semester in which students wish to enroll.

KCKCC Endowment Association Scholarships
The primary purpose of the Endowment Association is to raise, manage, and distribute funds for the students at Kansas City Kansas Community College in the form of scholarships.

The Endowment Association awards scholarships each year ranging from $250 to assist with the purchase of books to full payment of tuition, fees, and books based on scholarship criteria and a student’s academic qualifications. Many of the recipients of these scholarships are non-traditional students who don’t qualify for traditional forms of financial aid. Many are single heads of household trying to raise a family on their own, working full time jobs, and still trying to make their life better by getting a college education.
