Kansas Promise Scholarship Act
Kansas Promise Scholarship Act:
The Kansas Promise Scholarship Act is available at all Kansas Community Colleges and is a first come first serve scholarship with no deadline (seniors can begin applying now). To see the programs eligible at each community college, go to https://www.kacct.org/kansas-promise-scholarship and click on the individual school links.
All information about this new scholarship, which pays for EVERYTHING (tuition, fees, books, supplies) - room and board are not covered - is listed on the KACCT website. There is $10 million dollars available across the state to ensure Kansas students who want to study in the most in-demand fields can do so at no cost to them. The fields of Physical or Mental Healthcare, Advanced Manufacturing and Building Trades, Early Childhood or Elementary Education, Information Technology, (and each school gets to choose one more program area) are eligible.
In exchange for the scholarship (which funds technical certificates, in addition to anything up to and including an A.A.S. in the eligible fields) the only thing the student must do is complete the program that they choose and then live and work in Kansas for two years post completion (the two year commitment can be delayed if they pursue additional higher education).
