Century Scholars

The Century Scholars scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate outstanding academic performance as well as strength of character. Previously, winners would receive their awards each spring at a banquet hosted by the Century Scholars supporters and their guests. This year, Century Scholars will be awarded at the Scholarship Recognition Dinner on Oct. 12, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Century Scholars Recognition Society

The Century Scholars Recognition Society is comprised of caring individuals who wish to make a difference. Donor support funds two scholarships that provide funding for tuition, books and fees for one year to outstanding KCC sophomore students.

Century Scholars scholarship recipients are chosen from the top divisional scholarship candidates.

Help students reach their educational goals

Choosing to support the Century Scholars Recognition Society sends an important message to others, and it provides tremendous advantages to KCC students. Tuition, fees and books only represent a portion of the actual cost of a student's education.

By making a gift to the Century Scholars Recognition Society, you are helping students reach their educational goals. Ultimately, you are also making an impact on the socio-economic vitality of our community.

Become a supporter

Donors are included in the Century Scholars Recognition Society through an annual donation of $125 per individual or $250 per couple.

To be included in this prestigious recognition society, complete the enrollment form and mail it with your gift to the Century Scholars Recognition Program c/o KCC Foundation, 100 College Drive, Kankakee, IL 60901.

As a supporter, you'll be invited to attend the Scholarship Recognition Dinner in October, where you will learn first-hand how you are making a significant impact on the scholarship recipients.
