Additional applications will be denied and will slow the application review process.

Please keep in mind that scholarship awards range from $200-$3,000 per academic year with the greatest amounts awarded to students with the least amount of financial aid grants and external scholarships already awarded through FAFSA, employment, Free College for ME, and/or other sources of student financial assistance. Full-time students will financial aid awards (grants, scholarships, loans, waivers, etc.) in excess of $12,000 are not likely to be awarded a KVCC Foundation Scholarship.
  • KVCC recognizes that students often have competing demands outside of class. KVCC currently has a childcare grant in collaboration with KVCap. The grant provides childcare supports and subsidies to qualifying students with child/ren that are younger than 5 years that are not eligible for kindergarten. If you would like KVCC to forward your KVCC scholarship application to KVCap to determine if you may be eligible for childcare supports and/or subsidy, please enter your name and date in the box below.
