Kane Scholarship

The Kane Family Foundation awards high achieving Colorado residents the full-cost of tuition, fees, and books for up to four years. The estimated value of the Kane scholarship is approximately $60,000 over four years. Qualifying students must have a 3.5 HS GPA and show consistent, long term, extracurricular involvement. Past recipients have been in the top 10% of their high school class, although this is not a requirement. Recipients are expected to be campus leaders, top students, and graduate within four years. Kane Scholars Awards are also made at Pikes Peak Community College and are transferable to UCCS.

Finalists will be contacted for an interview by the end of February. Interviews will be held in March on campus. Applicants will be notified of scholarship results in April.
