The KCC Foundation has closed this scholarship opportunity for the Fall 2022/Spring 2023 semesters. The priority deadline for most scholarships is March 1, 2022. For assistance, contact the KCC Foundation at 269-965-4161 or [email protected].


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 awards up to $3,500 for one academic year and can be renewed for a second year at KCC if the recipient maintains program eligibility and scholarship responsibilities (see below). Acceptance of this scholarship nullifies all other scholarship offers from the KCC Foundation. This scholarship can be used for tuition, fees and/or books. Unused awards will not be refunded. Cannot be used at a different college or university. 

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.
