Current Opportunities

Kansas City Scholars (KC Scholars; www.kcscholars.org) is a 501(c)(3) college scholarship, college planning and persistence support, and college success program designed to increase the college completion rate for low- and modest- income students and adult learners across the six-county, bi-state service region.

KC Scholars launched in September 2016 and, in less than four years, has experienced widespread community engagement and rapid scaling. We now have over 3,000 Scholars, with near 1,200 in college. KC Scholars is on the path to near 10,000 Scholars by 2022 and is projected to grow to near 20,000 by 2027.

In its first three years, KC Scholars has experienced rapid growth, achieved a high level of community engagement and exceeded goals for number of scholarships awarded and college enrollment and persistence rates. Early impact rates are significantly higher than for the region, state, and nation.
