With ongoing progress made at the state level, Cowley College has been approved to receive more than $300,000 in Kansas Promise Act scholarship dollars to assist Kansas residents who wish to study and work in Kansas. The Kansas Promise Act, passed in April 2021, allows Kansas residents the opportunity to earn scholarship dollars for select programs at no cost to eligible students beginning in August of 2021.
The scholarship dollars can be applied to tuition, fees, books and/or required materials towards an extensive list of Cowley eligible program categories in Advanced Manufacturing and Construction/Building Trades, Early Childhood Education and Development, Healthcare (Physical and Mental Health), Information Technology and Security Programs, and Law, Public Safety, Corrections and Security Programs.
Dr. Michelle Schoon, Cowley College vice president of academic affairs, said the Kansas Promise Scholarship provides a great opportunity for students to complete a certificate or degree pathway without accumulating student debt.
“Cowley College has over 70 degrees and certificates that students can choose from in the technical trades and general education transfer pathways that would qualify for this scholarship and we are looking forward to helping students reach their career goals,” Dr. Schoon said.
The enrollment team at Cowley College has established a designated website and admissions representative to assist students interested in the Kansas Promise eligible programs.
