SCHOLARSHIPS

Graduation Ceremony

The Hancock Family Foundation awards scholarships to graduating seniors from Kansas City area public school districts to attend any public, in-state college, community college, or trade school. Applicants should be promising students who would otherwise not be able to afford a college education but have the desire and potential to better themselves. Once all applications have been reviewed, applicants will be informed of the committee’s decision by email. It is our policy to not provide an explanation for scholarship applications that are not selected.
