The Kellogg Community College Foundation is proud to announce nine recipients of the KCC Board of Trustees Scholarship.

The scholarship awards up to $3,500 toward in-district tuition and fees each year for up to two years at KCC and is open to graduating high school seniors within the College’s service district. Qualifying applicants must have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.2 or higher and must demonstrate leadership experience, community and service activity and involvement in school activities, in addition to committing to participate in the KCC Honors Program.
