Join The Team

Kansas City Scholars (KC Scholars; www.kcscholars.org) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to increasing the college completion rate for low- and modest- income students and adult learners across the six-county, bi-state service region. KC Scholars works towards this goal through financial support, college planning and persistence support, and college success programming.

KC Scholars launched in September 2016 and in less than five years garnered widespread community engagement and rapid scaling. With now  over 5,000 Scholars, and almost  2,000 Scholars in college, KC Scholars is on the path to near 10,000 Scholars by 2022 and is projected to grow to near 15,000 by 2027.

KC Scholars routinely exceeds goals for the number of scholarships awarded, college enrollment, and persistence rates. Early impact rates are significantly higher  for the region, state, and nation.
