Providing Equal Access to Education

KCF believes in the importance of higher education. This belief is the driving force behind our scholarship program, which assists children of our employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Through this program, we strive to make education more accessible for our Kodiak family, which helps us do our part in contributing to the success of the next generation.


The scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Kodiak Cares Foundation Scholarship Program must:

Be dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time Kodiak Gas Services, domestic employees who have a minimum of two years employment with the company as of the application deadline date.

High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

To apply, the following must be uploaded:

A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

NOTE: If uploading a high school transcript, a copy of the applicants official SAT or ACT test scores if the test scores are not available on your high school transcript.

The application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to four awards will be granted. Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, based on satisfactory academic performance (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale) and fulltime enrollment. Per IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47, the employment eligibility requirement does not apply to previous recipients. Awards are for undergraduate study only. Awards are for qualified education-related expenses only (tuition, fees, books, and required supplies only).

All applicants will be notified in April directly by Scholarship America.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Kodiak Cares Foundation. Payment is made in August.

Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need will not be considered.
