Donor Supported Scholarships

Gifts of scholarship support current Keystone College students and demonstrate the commitment and appreciation that our alumni and community friends hold.

Funding a scholarship allows a student to focus on their studies and remove the anxiety of how they are going to pay their tuition. Your generosity enables a student to enroll, or continue their education, at Keystone College despite financial hardship.

When you create a new scholarship or fund an existing program, you help supplement crucial financial aid packages. You have the option of giving to the KC General Scholarship Fund, or establishing a named or endowed scholarship.

Keystone is proud to provide students support with nearly 150 endowed scholarships.
