Our Opportunities

Thank you for inquiring about scholarship opportunities offered through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and Greater Horizons


Please begin by completing your General Application. This is your profile. You will then be prompted to complete a second set of questions that will help to match you to different scholarship opportunities. Please be sure to read through each question and answer to the best of your ability. Upon completion, you will be given a list of applications that you qualify for, but may require additional information. You can apply to as many scholarships as you wish.
You are not considered for a scholarship until you select and apply to that opportunity.
