Diploma+ Scholarship Initiative

Together we can change the way our students view post-secondary education. The Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools (KCKPS) scholarship initiative wants as many students as possible to have options regarding a college education. 

The KCKPS intent is to enable post-secondary partners to offer KCKPS seniors scholarships as early as possible in a personal and motivating way. This cultural shift introduces, shares, and solidifies the relationship among the senior students offered, their siblings, parents, school personnel, and our post-secondary partners. It is a way to deepen communication among all of us in a meaningful and profound manner.

It is an opportunity for post-secondary staff to benefit from personal contact with KCKPS seniors and establish awareness that can lead to a rapport and familiarity for secondary students that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. The scholarship initiative intent is to go beyond the accumulation of scholarship dollars. The beauty lies in the communication it is meant to provide, that being the increase in personal contact and engagement among the various parties that serve our students.  In essence, it is a catalyst where secondary and pos-tsecondary institutions link for the benefit of our children.
