KC Scholars is a co-investment model, with a plan for widespread community investment to match the significant commitment made by the Kauffman Foundation. As the community invests in KC Scholars, we will be able to make more scholarship awards. These generous community investors are helping to change lives and make college opportunity possible for our recipients.
