Summer Scholarship Application

To be eligible for a summer scholarship, scholarship applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Have unmet financial need as determined by a FAFSA form
    • Summer scholarships are only available to students with unmet financial need (determined by FAFSA) and typically only to students who do not have a summer Pell Grant sufficient to fund summer tuition charges.
    • If you qualify for a summer Pell Grant, the Pell award will be applied to your summer bill first. If you have remaining unmet need, you will be considered for a summer scholarship to reduce your remaining summer tuition charges which are not covered by a Pell Grant.
  • Be matriculated in a KVCC degree or certificate program OR
    • Have a completed enrollment application on file for the fall semester.
    • Summer courses must be required in your academic program
