MONEY: Donate to a Scholarship
Over 70 members of the Kansas City community, representing multiple sectors, developed KC Scholars to support more low- and modest-income students and adult learners to finance and complete college. Anyone can donate to KC Scholars and named scholarship opportunities are available for a commitment of $2,500 a year for five consecutive years. All students—regardless of income, age or ethnicity—deserve an opportunity to earn a college education.
TIME: Become a Reviewer
A guiding philosophy of the KC Scholars program is to have a high level of community-engagement. Toward that end, community members are able to apply to be scholarship application reviewers. It is anticipated that nearly 150 reviewers will be needed. Reviewers will be reading and scoring specific sections of the scholarship applications.
