KC Scholars

In April 2023, Northwest Missouri State University joined the KC Scholars Post-secondary Network. This new partnership is good news for students who get a KC Scholars traditional scholarship, adult learner scholarship, college savings match, or Northwest-only KC Scholarship because they can now use their award at Northwest. This partnership will have a big impact on the local economy and job market, and it will also help students succeed by offering them extra support services.


About the Scholarships

This scholarship is for adults who completed some college but didn't earn a degree. It's called the Adult Learner Scholarship. It helps adults aged 18 or older with a high school diploma or equivalent or an associate degree who want to complete a bachelor's degree. Adult learners can get up to $50,000 paid to their college or university for up to six years. They can enroll full or part-time.
