GKC Scholarship Applications

Nationally, only 55% of African American students graduate from high school on time. Of those who do graduate from high school, less than half enter a 4 year college. Currently, only 21% of African American’s 25 years or older have at least a bachelor’s degree.


The Greater Kansas City Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, is pleased to announce the offering of scholarships for African American high school seniors in the metropolitan area.


For over the past 20 years, the Greater Kansas City Chapter of The Links, Incorporated has assisted students in their pursuit of higher education. We are proud to have rewarded over $500,000 in scholarships to high-achieving high school and college students from the Kansas City area. As long as students are pursuing an undergraduate degree and the funds will go towards their undergraduate education, students may apply annually to renew the scholarship.
