Kane Family Scholarships

The Trustees of the Kane Family Foundation have partnered with Pikes Peak State College and the Foundation for PPSC to offer the Kane Family Foundation Scholarship to high-achieving high school students who enroll at PPSC.

The Kane Family Foundation currently allocates about half of the scholarships to PPSC students who plan to pursue an Associate’s degree at PPSC and half to PPSC student who plan to complete two years of study at PPSC, then transfer to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) to complete the bachelor degree.

To qualify candidates need to have a 3.0 or higher GPA and must be able to complete their goals in either two or four years depending on which scholarship a student is awarded.

The typical work load for students is 14 or higher credit hours per semester. In order for students to be successful with this rigorous course-load, students are required to meet with an advisor twice each semester.

Thank you to all of our Donors, Friends, Community Partners and Alumni! Please consider donating a secure, online gift to help PPSC students succeed. Application Interested students should complete the PPSC scholarship application each year.

Students can view and apply for the Kane Scholarships through the online application. For more information, please call 719.502.2016.  Visit the PPSC Scholarships page to learn more about the application process and to apply.
