Applications will be accepted beginning

September 1, 2021, for the 2021/2022 school year.

 

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. New in 2020/2021 the high school program is now a member benefit. The college program remains the same, which was introduced as a member benefit in 2015.  All applicants for both high school and college who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a one-time $1,000 award to offset the cost of tuition and/or fees.

College Educational Grant Program criteria include:

  • This is a one-time award of $1,000.
  • Student must have an active policy in good standing and have maintained at least 2 (two) years of a whole-life policy, 4 (four) years of a term policy, or 4(four) years of an annuity product at the time of application.
  • Students are expected to maintain their policies for at least two years after receiving their award.
  • Applications will be accepted only via an online form on the website and only during the month of September each year. No late applications will be accepted. Applicants will be asked to answer questions and upload a head shot photo for promotional purposes, including recognition online and other media.
  • Applicants will need to upload and attach a current course schedule reflecting enrollment as a full-time student as defined by their institution.
