Kohl's Accepting Nominations for 2015 Scholarships; Ages 6-18 Eligible

Kohl's Department Stores is accepting nominations for the 2015 Kohl’s Cares Scholarships, an annual program that recognizes youth between the ages of 6 and 18 who, through their voluntarism, have had a positive impact on their communities.

Winners will be chosen based on the benefits and outcomes of their volunteer service. Nominators must be 21 or older. The deadline for nominations is March 13, 2015.

To be eligible, students must be between the ages of 6 and 18 as of March 15, 2015, and not yet a high school graduate. In addition, the student's volunteer efforts must have occurred in the last year.

Scholarships and prizes will be awarded at three levels: Store winners,  each of whom will receive a $50 Kohl’s Gift Card; regional winners, each of whom will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship  toward their post-secondary education; and national winners,  each of whom will receive a $10,000 scholarship, and an award of $1,000 for the nonprofit organization of their choice.

Scholarship awards must be used for educational expenses at a qualifying institution. These expenses may include tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and other miscellaneous education-related expenses.
