The 2018 KCBS Scholarship program is open to graduating High School seniors and continuing College students who meet the following criteria:

* The student must have carried a minimum grade point average of 2.50 (on a 4.0 scale) in the last school year.

*  The student can show evidence of their good character by being involved in public service or extra-curricular activities.

*   The student shall obtain two letters of recommendation.  One letter must be from a school official (such as a guidance counselor,/advisor,teacher, or professor).  The other letter may be from an employer, religious leader, volunteer supervisor, or other individual (who is not a family member or relative) that can attest to your character and community contributions.
