Happy reading!


KC Scholars celebrated its first two college graduates in December 2017. Joslyn Brockman and Teeka Hodge, recipients of the adult learner scholarship, have changed their lives and future careers in the seven months since they were awarded scholarships.



KC Scholars is a co-investment model, with a plan for community investment to match the significant commitment made by the Kauffman Foundation. As the community invests in KC Scholars, we will be able to increase the number of scholarships awarded each year. A listing of generous community investors are listed at
