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. The Legacy Scholar scholarships cover tuition, fees and books.

The BCCF Legacy Scholar representative can be reached by phone while on campus at KCC by calling 269-965-3931 ext. 2095.
