Kansas City scholarship applications available

The faculty, staff and friends of Columbia College–Kansas City have established an endowed fund to support students attending the campus. This fund is designed to provide an award to two students attending the Kansas City campus.

The individuals selected will receive a one-time $500 award which is only to be used for tuition to Columbia College. The award will be given during the early fall session in August 2010. To ensure that the maximum number of students benefit from these awards, each recipient may receive the Kansas City scholarship only once during his or her college career at Columbia College.

Recipients of the scholarship must be currently enrolled and pursuing a degree at Columbia College and have completed at least 12 semester hours at the Kansas City campus with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Also, recipients must have demonstrated financial need. The application process includes a 400-500 word essay noting evidence of financial need and a description of career goals, leadership, and/or community service achievements.

Students may pick up an application for the Kansas City scholarship at the Columbia College–Kansas City office. The due date for the applications is April 30.
