KC Employee - Dependent Child Scholarship:

Dependent Child Scholarship Application (pdf)

Dependent children of full time employees may be eligible to receive an institutional scholarship in an amount equivalent to the in-district tuition and general education fee costs.  Application for this scholarship and eligibility determination must occur annually

Basic requirements for scholarship eligibility include:

  • Prospective scholarship recipients must file the annual FAFSA application and receive their SAR before scholarship eligibility can be determined.
  • NOTE: Students claiming independent status when filing their FAFSA have waived their dependency rights and are not eligible for this scholarship.  Dual credit/early admission students need not file the FAFSA.
  • “Dependent children” of full-time employees who have a minimum of one year of service at Kilgore College will be considered eligible for this scholarship.

This scholarship will have the following limitations:

  • A maximum of 62 attempted semester credit hours (or equivalent continuing education certificate hours) will be covered.
  • Typically, participants will be limited to one degree or certificate.
  • Only in-district tuition and general education fees will be paid; out-of-district fees, course specific fees, books, uniforms, supplies, etc. will not be covered.
  • This will be a non-liquidated scholarship; thus, no cash will accrue to the student.
  • Students will be required to maintain a 2.5 grade point average each semester to retain the scholarship.

In order to maintain consistency between financial aid programs, dependency must be documented through one of the following means:

  • The student is claimed as a dependent on the employee’s most recent IRS tax return; or
  • The student is covered by the employee’s Kilgore College sponsored insurance plan; or
  • The employee is currently paying child support to/on behalf of the student; or
  • The student lists dependency to the employee on his/her FAFSA application.

Employees who do not meet the eligibility requirements but who have extenuating circumstances may request a review of their eligibility status by completing a review request form.
