About Us

Since its inception in 2004, approximately 420 high school seniors have been awarded $1,000 scholarships.  Starting this year we have increased that amount to $1,250.  Each of these award recipients are invited to re-apply each year they remain in college for additional $1,250 per year scholarships.

Though each student must re-apply annually it is our goal to continue to provide such scholarship recipients with ongoing financial support assuming, of course, that they each maintain full-time status in school and otherwise meet certain basic criteria for such awards.

In 2020, Give Kids A Chance anticipates awarding at least 25 scholarships to high school seniors.  We currently have our  Scholarship Application online for use by high school seniors.  Applications are typically submitted by mid-April of the student's senior year with decisions make by GKAC's selection committee by May of such year.


For information on what criteria is needed to apply and to download application forms, check out our Scholarship Application.
