Kohl's Scholarships Available for Young Volunteers
It's time again for Kohl’s Department Stores' annual effort to recognize young volunteers and make their college dreams come true.
The 2013 Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program is underway. From Feb. 1-Mar. 15, the department store—the local Kohl's is at 1711 Route 10 in Morris Plains—will accept nominations for outstanding young volunteers from ages six to 18.
To make a nomination, you must be 21 years of age or older.
Through the program, Kohl’s will award more than 2,300 young volunteers more than $425,000 in scholarships and prizes to reward kids who have made a positive impact on their communities.
- Two nominees from each of the more than 1,100 Kohl’s stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl’s gift card.
- More than 200 of the store winners will win regional scholarships worth $1,000 toward post-secondary education.
- Ten national winners will be awarded a total of $10,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education, and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
The Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program is part of Kohl’s Cares, Kohl’s philanthropic program focused on improving the lives of children. Since the program began in 2001, Kohl’s has recognized more than 17,000 kids with more than $3.4 million in scholarships and prizes.
