KC announces new Academic Achievement Scholarships

Kishwaukee College is now accepting applications for the college’s Academic Achievement Scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year.

This year, Kish will be offering two types of Academic Achievement Scholarships for in-district high school seniors who will attend Kish in fall 2018: the President’s Scholar and the College Scholar. The application deadline for both scholarships is March 23 at 4 p.m.

The President’s Scholar is a $1,000 a semester scholarship that students may use for four consecutive semesters beginning in fall 2018, and is available to all in-district high school seniors who have a seventh-semester grade point average of 3.75 or higher. 

The College Scholar is a $500 a semester scholarship for fall 2018 and spring 2019 and is available to all in-district high school seniors who have a seventh semester GPA of 3.25 to 3.74. This is a pilot scholarship program for the 2018-19 academic year.

High school seniors who attend in-district high schools, meet the GPA criteria and who graduate in fall 2017 or spring 2018 are eligible to apply. In-district high schools are: Cornerstone Christian Academy, DeKalb High School, Genoa-Kingston High School, Hiawatha High School, Indian Creek High School, Oregon High School, Paw Paw High School, Rochelle Township High School and Sycamore High School. The Academic Achievement Scholarships are noncompetitive academic scholarships and all eligible students are encouraged to apply.
