Below is a list of scholarships KCC's Financial Aid Office has selected that are of special interest to our students, including KCC's Foundation awards, which are available only to KCC students.


KCC Foundation Scholarship Awards:

KCC Foundation Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis and receive contributions from several organizations and endowments. To learn more about Foundation scholarships, please visit the KCC Foundation web page at, select scholarships, and apply during fall term each year.  For more information, call 541.880-2234.


Ford Family Scholarship

The Ford Family Foundation offers a suite of financial and program resources in Oregon, Siskiyou County, Calif., and, in some cases, other regions. Many recipients enthusiastically declare that the Scholarship Programs are about “so much more than the money.” Our selection committees strive to select recipients whose past and potential are worthy of special support. We work to develop a long-term relationship with such students – not simply to bestow a financial scholarship.

The National Scholarship

We think of our National Scholarship as the “Pell Grant” for highly motivated undocumented students with significant, unmet financial need. While we consider your GPA, we place great emphasis on your demonstrated commitment to community service and your ability to overcome the barriers and challenges that undocumented students face each and every day.


The application for the 2023-24 National Scholarship will open on November 1, 2022 and close February 28, 2023. Final notifications will be sent via email in late April 2023.
