The Scholarship program
provides scholarships to graduating seniors to assist them with the cost of attending a post-secondary school. In order to qualify, students must apply, meet specific criteria and attend a high school in one of the schoool districts served by Assistance League of Kansas City. Those districts are:
- Excelsior Springs
- Kearney R-1
- North Kansas City
- Park Hill
- Platte County R-3
- Smithville R2
- St. Pius X
- West Platte R-3
Application deadline is February 28, 2020.
During 2018-19, eighteen students in ten area high schools were awarded $1,000 to $2,000 each. The number of scholarships and the amount of each scholarship may vary depending on Assistance League's revenue for that year.
Feedback from scholarship recipients in 2018 include:
"Thank you so much for your generosity and support."
"I will work hard to prove to you that your faith in me isn't misguided, and to help students achieve their goals just like you have helped me."
