Scholarships FAQ

Do I need to submit more than one application?

No! Each student only needs to submit ONE online application for each semester. The Foundation Scholarship Review Committee selects one scholarship for each applicant based on the student’s qualifications, posted criteria and available funding.

When will I know if I am awarded a Foundation scholarship?

Every applicant will be notified of the award status approximately 8 weeks after the scholarship deadline. If awarded a scholarship, the student must complete an acceptance form and thank you note and return them to the Foundation or funding will not be received.

Do I need to reapply for a scholarship each semester?

Yes! Each semester the student needs to submit a new online application with supporting documents.

When will my scholarship be applied to my student account?

Scholarship funding will be posted to the student’s account on WebAdvisor mid-semester of the award period. For example, if you receive a scholarship for Spring semester, you should see it applied to your student account by mid-Spring semester.

Do I need a Faculty Recommendation Letter?

Some scholarships require a letter of recommendation. If you are in the KCKCC Music Program, Nursing Program, Addiction Counselor Program, or Technical Education Program, you will be asked to complete a follow-up step after submitting the general application to request a letter of recommendation from a KCKCC Instructor. Students should notify the instructor before requesting a letter.  When prompted, simply enter in the instructor's name and email address and an email will be sent to the instructor. Instructors will be able to log in and upload the letter of recommendation. Students will not be able to view the letter, however students can see if the instructor has submitted the letter or not.

Can I apply for Foundation scholarships as a dual enrolled high school student?

Only dual enrolled high school students in their final high school semester are eligible for KCKCC Foundation scholarships. 

How do I use my KCKCC Foundation scholarship for books?

Books can be purchased with your KCKCC Foundation scholarship at the KCKCC Bookstore. You must visit the KCKCC Business Office (Room 3260) to receive a book voucher to use at the bookstore.

What are educational expenses?

Educational expenses are any direct costs charged to students' accounts, including tuition, fees, required books and supplies, student housing and student meal plans. All KCKCC Foundation scholarships cover educational expenses unless specified otherwise by the donor.
