Kiwanis Foundation Scholarships at WCC
Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation’s “Finish Line” Scholarships
The Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation has a long history of providing scholarships for students going to college. Starting in 2019 the scholarship program changed from providing a single small scholarship at the start of the student’s college years to a new focus of helping a student successfully complete a degree program at Washtenaw Community College (WCC). Therefore, the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation members identified and implemented a new set of goals for the Kiwanis scholarships.
These goals include:
Increase the size of each individual awarded scholarship to a student attending Washtenaw Community College (WCC). The Kiwanis scholarship goal is to be a full-ride scholarship to cover the cost of books, tuition, and fees.
Award both a 1st year and 2nd year similar size scholarship to the same student, based on their successful progress toward completing a degree, i.e., getting across the “finish line” with a WCC Associates Degree.
Develop a partnership with Washtenaw Community College (WCC) Foundation to support the students who receive these scholarships.
This on-going innovative scholarship program is funded by the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation, its Members and Volunteers. It was created in cooperation with the WCC Foundation and is designed to support former high school students with limited financial resources to achieve their dream of receiving a WCC college degree.
