The Kendall-Grundy scholarship program awards scholarships annually to clients to aid them in obtaining formal education or occupational training from an accredited Illinois educational institution. Scholarships may be used for tuition and fees, textbooks, supplies or room and/or board. Scholarship awards will be made directly to the college or university’s financial aid office. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply in February of each year and the deadline is in mid April. Successful applicants will accept their scholarship awards at the Awards Dinner in June.
Kendall-Grundy Community Action (KGCA) provides a variety of services to residents of both Kendall and Grundy counties.

The funding is provided by Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO), Illinois Department of Health Care and Family Services. KGCA constantly strives to meet the changing demands and needs of the growing community.
