One Easy Application

Kirkwood’s scholarship program provides support for students at all academic and financial levels, and for all credit programs.

Kirkwood uses a scholarship software to connect Kirkwood Eagles to hundreds of internal scholarship opportunities! Best of all, Kirkwood students only need to complete one easy application to be considered.

The Kirkwood scholarship application is now closed for the 2024-’25 academic year. Students can view external scholarship opportunities using the ‘External Scholarship Opportunities’ link to the right, or check back after Oct. 1 to start a scholarship application for the 2025-’26 academic year.
