Scholarship Search Tools A social enterprise focused on offering "micro-scholarships" to expand access to higher education, especially among low income and first generation students. enables students to earn scholarships throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular. We recommend all students begin their search with this tool.  This website is dedicated to helping Wyandotte County students find scholarships for college. The site is updated frequently to provide students with the most up-to-date information, listing local, organizational, and national scholarships for students in Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas. Featured scholarships are geared toward underrepresented groups in higher education (low-income and first-generation college-going students). Amazing college match and scholarship search.
