TK SCHOLARSHIP FUND

The Teen KICK Collegiate Fund (TKCF) was created with the belief that any motivated individual in need should have the opportunity to further her education. By removing some of the financial burdens associated with going to, surviving in, and graduating from college, the TKCF plays a vital role in increasing college access, preparation and success for many motivated yet underserved youth. The TKCF provides KICK Care Packages (items such as: feminine hygiene products, tide to go, toothpaste, soap, variety pack snacks, Advil & gift cards from Starbucks and Amazon just to name a few) to those leaving for College, as well as individual grants, to every student who qualifies and reapplies yearly, from admission to graduation. The grant can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books and lab fees. All KICK Scholars are required to consistently pay it forward by conducting community service and also serving as mentors to younger, aspiring KICK Scholars.
