Outside scholarships or “agency scholarships” are funds that are awarded to students from sources outside of Kilgore College. Examples of outside sources are the Elks Lodge, the Lions Club, School organizations and Banks, etc. Most agencies do not send the scholarship funds to the school until the student’s proof of enrollment is provided to the scholarship donor. Proof of enrollment is the fee schedule that the student receives during class registration. Agencies usually prefer to send the student’s scholarship funds directly to the school to be credited to the students account.
