Kinnett Scholarships for College/Further Education
Since 2005, the Foundation has been helping to make the dream of college a reality for many students. The Kinnett Scholarship for College/Further Education, aimed at graduating seniors from affiliated high schools*, grants $1,000 scholarships to:
Students receiving special education services pursuing further education through college, vocational school, or post-secondary programs, or
Students planning on pursuing a college degree in Special Education.
The Kinnett Scholarship was established with a bequest to the then NSSED Foundation from the estates of Frances and Betty Lou Kinnett--long time community members who shared a deep commitment to education.
The Kinnett Scholarship for College/Further Education is paused and scholarships will not be awarded in 2023.
The scholarship funds will be payable after you have finished your first semester of college and sent us a copy of a bill or fee statement. No transcript will be necessary. You are required to do this within three years after your high school graduation.
