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.

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.
