Since the 1950s, KSKJ Life has promoted education through the KSKJ Life Scholarship Program. Originally, the program was founded as a competitive process to support members as they pursued education. In an effort to continue the advancement of the program, the traditional Scholarship Program, which was only available to a select few members, has been enhanced as the KSKJ Life Educational Grant Program, open to all members who meet the requirements. While the streamlined high school program remains competitive, the college program is now a member benefit.  All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a one-time $1,000 award to offset the cost of tuition and/or fees.
