A new scholarship program to help Kansas students build a brighter tomorrow.

JCCC is proud to be one of more than two dozen schools and colleges awarding the new Kansas Promise Scholarship to qualified students.

This "last dollar" scholarship can be used to pay for your tuition, books and other Promise-eligible course-related materials not covered by other scholarships or grants.

In exchange, you agree to live and work in Kansas for two years after completing your program of study.
