Past, current and future high school students from Battle Creek are encouraged to submit applications and check eligibility for college scholarships through the Legacy Scholars program, which pays for up to 62 credit hours of tuition at Kellogg Community College.

To assist students with the application process and answer questions about eligibility, representatives from KCC and the Battle Creek College Access Network will be on hand at the Legacy Scholars Application Day event, which will occur from 1 to 6 p.m. March 25, inside the Student Center at Kellogg Community College, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek.

Students and members of the public are invited to stop in anytime during the event, whether they’re learning about Legacy Scholars for the first time or completing an application for the 2015-16 school year. The application deadline for next year’s Legacy Scholars scholarships is April 1.

People who attend the Application Day event aren’t required to bring any documents. However, completed applications will need to include the applicant’s photo, transcript, personal essay and data from the Student Aid Report (SAR) and Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which are part of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Legacy Scholars, a program created in 2005 by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, provides a last-dollar KCC scholarship for anyone who graduates from Battle Creek Public Schools, Lakeview School District or Calhoun Community High School. High school students are eligible for Legacy Scholars funding for up to five years following high school graduation. Scholarships cover tuition, fees and books.

For more information or to begin an application, contact the Battle Creek College Access Network at 269-719-8228 or www.bccfoundation.org/scholarships.
