Carthage College awards eight full-tuition scholarships to City of Kenosha residents. These scholarships are worth more than $125,000 each, making Carthage quite affordable. In order to be eligible, applicants must participate in a competition. The Kenosha Scholarship Competition takes place in January. Both on-campus and remote options will be offered. During the competition, prospective Kenosha Scholars invited to this second round of competition will complete an essay and have a conversation with Carthage faculty/staff.
Candidates interested in the Kenosha Scholarship Competition must complete the following: submit an application for admission to Carthage and supporting materials (high school transcripts); submit the Kenosha Scholarship Application; submit a list of all high school and community organizations and activities (including work) in which you have participated; and submit a 250-word essay, evaluating how a significant experience or achievement in your life has helped shape who you are today.
