The Kingsborough Community College Foundation offers several scholarships (including needs-based financial assistance, special awards, book vouchers and emergency grants) to qualified applicants throughout the academic year. KCC Foundation scholarships are funded by individual donors, charitable foundations and grantmakers, and are awarded without explicit regard to age, race, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, national origin or any other legally prohibited basis in accordance with federal, state and city law.

However, the College also promotes external non-Foundation scholarship opportunities, such as the ones listed here, which may potentially take certain factors such as race or gender into account. KCC does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender orientation, race, ethnicity or national origin. The scholarship opportunities posted under NYS Scholarships and External Scholarships are NOT affiliated with the KCC Foundation and are not monitored by the College in any capacity.
