One Easy Application

Kirkwood’s scholarship program provides support for students at all academic and financial levels, and for all credit programs.

Kirkwood uses a scholarship matching tool to connect Kirkwood Eagles to hundreds of internal and external scholarship opportunities! Best of all, Kirkwood students only need to complete one easy application to be considered.

The internal scholarship application is now closed for the 2023-'24 academic year. Students can still apply for external scholarships, or check back after October 1 to start a scholarship application for the 2024-'25 academic year.
