Kansas Promise Act Scholarship


The Kansas Promise Act was passed into law in April, 2021 and became effective with the Fall 2021 semester. This legislation allows Kansas residents the opportunity to earn scholarship dollars to cover expenses associated with completing an eligible two-year associate degree program, CTE Certificate, or stand alone approved program at Cowley College or other eligible post-secondary institution.  In return, the student must agree to live and work in the State of Kansas for two consecutive years upon successfully completing the program and provide required reports and documentation to the Kansas Board of Regents as designated.
