Planning for the Future

Do you qualify for a scholarship but are not yet eligible? That's where our Kids' Chance of America's Planning for the Future initiative can help. This initiative is designed to identify potential scholarship applicants, especially those who are not yet of college-age.

KCOA will collect and maintain your contact information so they can reach out when the time comes to consider options for higher education. KCOA then connects you to the appropriate Kids’ Chance state organization to begin the scholarship application process.
