Previous reviewers report that serving as a Reviewer was among their most impactful experiences. They learned a lot, were inspired by applicants’ stories, and felt a strong connection to one of our region’s most transformative programs.
As a community asset, KC Scholars engages the community through its volunteer community reviewer opportunity. If you are looking for a way to give back, to make a difference, to support individuals through hope and opportunity for college – this is a role for you!
Reviewers dedicate about 20 hours of service in March and April. Reviewing is completed online, making it possible to complete from anywhere.
Applications for new reviewers will open at kcscholars.org on January 1, 2021 and are due by January 29, 2021. Help us share this volunteer opportunity with your network: KC Scholars Volunteer Opportunity Graphic
INTEGRITY OF REVIEW PROCESS IS HIGH
KC Scholars takes great care to ensure a high-integrity and fair review process through these actions:
Maintaining confidentiality of applicants (names and identifying information is not viewable by reviewers)
A process is in place for reviewers to indicate to KC Scholars when a conflict of interest may be present and then to refrain for reviewing the application
School personnel are filtered so they do not review applications from students in their schools
Employers are filtered so they do not review applications from their employees
