  1. Transfer Merit Award

Transfer Merit Award

The Transfer Merit Scholarship program is available exclusively to our incoming Transfer Students at the time of their application for admission to KSC.


  • $2,000 awarded annually to full-time, in-state students
  • $6,000 awarded annually to full-time, out-of-state students

Criteria Guidelines and Renewal

  • Limited number of awards available
  • Eligible students may receive only one academic achievement scholarship
  • No separate Admissions or Financial Aid application is required
  • Eligibility is determined at the time of Admission
  • Minimum of 24 transferable college credits required for consideration
  • Students with minimum college transfer GPAs of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale are given consideration, priority consideration is given to higher GPAs
  • A minimum GPA of 3.00 is required to renew the scholarship each year for up to six consecutive full-time semesters, excluding summers
  • GPA is reviewed at the end of the academic year (spring semester)
  • There is no probation period
  • Future eligibility is forfeited if the student withdraws, takes a leave of absence or is under disciplinary suspension
  • Residency changes (i.e. non-resident to New Hampshire resident), or billing changes as a result of a non-resident using a staff tuition waiver, may result in adjustments to the student’s financial aid award. Financial aid awards are based upon a student’s cost of attendance, and if that decreases, the financial aid award may also decrease. This includes but is not limited to adjustments to the merit award from the non-resident award amount to the New Hampshire resident award amount.
