If you have a student that’s super active in the community and loves to make a difference, they just might score $10,000 from Kohl’s Cares Scholarship program. With the cost of college going up every year, that will pay for half a semester at a private university not including room and board. Every dollar helps!
Students between the ages of 6 and 18 as of March 13, 2015 and not yet a high school graduate are eligible to participate. Their volunteer actions should be described in detail on the nomination. Volunteer efforts must have occurred in the last year and must have benefited people not related to the student.
Winners will be chosen based on the benefits and outcomes of their volunteer service. Nominators must be 21 or older.
So what can they win? Local winners will each receive a $50 Kohl’s Gift Card. Regional winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship for higher education. National winners will receive a $10,000 scholarship, plus Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit of the student’s choice.
Nominations are accepted between January 30, 2015 and March 13, 2015.
