Kansas Promise Scholarship Act

The Kansas Promise Scholarship Act provides service scholarships for students to attend an “eligible postsecondary educational institution” in specified programs.

This scholarship program was passed by the Kansas Legislature and signed by Governor Laura Kelly on April 23, 2021. Several Coffeyville Community College programs are available at no cost to eligible students beginning fall 2021.

This program is a "last dollar"  scholarship – when other scholarships and grants are not sufficient to cover your tuition, fees, books and required course materials - the Kansas Promise Act will make up the difference. Recipients must meet qualifications and follow the application process to be eligible.


Eligibility Requirements
For students to be eligible for a service scholarship, they must:

  • Be a United States citizen and Kansas resident; AND
  • Have graduated from a secondary school within the preceding 12 months or have attended a secondary school and obtained an equivalent credential within the preceding 12 months;
    OR
  • Be Kansas resident for the preceding three consecutive years;
    OR
  • Be a dependent child of a military servicemember permanently stationed in another state and who, within the preceding 12 months, graduated from any out-of-state secondary school or obtained a high school equivalency;
    OR
  • Was in the custody of the KS Department of Children and Families at any time during grades 9-12.

Income Eligibility Requirements

Scholarships are to be prioritized according to applicants’ annual household income:

  • $100,000 or less for a family of two;
  • $150,000 or less for a family of three; and
  • $150,000 + $4,800 per additional family member beyond three.

If funds remain after awarding eligible applicants, other students with greater household income may become eligible.
