Scholarships for Adult Learners
Baker University has partnered with KC Scholars to offer scholarships to adult learners in the Kansas City area. The adult learner scholarship provides up to $10,000 a year, depending on enrollment status, and is renewable for up to five years.
The program is designed for low- or modest-income students who are 18 or older at the time of college enrollment and reside in one of the following six counties: Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte (Missouri), or Johnson and Wyandotte (Kansas). See the full list of requirements.
To remain eligible once enrolled in college, students must meet minimum annual requirements and complete a short renewal application each year to determine continued eligibility. They must also maintain continuous enrollment, either full time or part-time.
Applications open Jan. 9, 2023.
Deadline to apply is Feb. 24, 2023.

Funds will be available for fall 2023.
