What do I need to do to receive the Legacy Scholarship?
In addition to many suggested activities, there are three main requirements that all eligible students must do in order to access the Legacy Scholarship. The first is to apply to KCC. If students have not yet completed a KCC application, this can be done on their website at http://www.kellogg.edu/admissions/index.html. The next step is to complete a FAFSA. This can be completed any time after January 1. A student's parents should file taxes prior to completing the FAFSA, as it requires information provided on tax forms. The third step is to complete a Battle Creek Community Foundation scholarship application. A student who meets eligibility critera and completes these steps will be eligible to utilize the Legacy Scholarship.
