If you have a strong academic record or a special talent, you may qualify for a scholarship to help with your college costs. Unlike loans, scholarships do not need to be paid back. They are typically awarded on the basis of academic achievement or merit rather than need, but need-based scholarships are also available.
You can apply for scholarships from a number of sources, including KCTCS, state governments, and private funders. In addition to the options listed below, you may also want to explore scholarship offered by your local community or online.
