Since 1971, the Kishwaukee College Foundation has been providing financial support
to the College through the generosity of our donors. The Foundation helps shape the
future and enhance the opportunities available at Kish through student scholarship
support, program enhancements and general stewardship of Foundation resources.
During the recent economic hardships, students are turning to the Foundation in increased
numbers for financial support as more scholarship applications and emergency funding
requests come in. We are working hard to ensure students have their basic needs met,
both at home and in the classroom.
You too can help students be successful on their path to completion. Any amount you
can give is an investment in the future of our communities — both in the short term
and long term.
Perla Gonzalez, a Kishwaukee College nursing student, was named the recipient of a $1,000 Illinois Community College Faculty Association (ICCFA) Student Scholarship. She was recognized with the award at the ICCFA conference luncheon on Nov. 10 in Bloomington.
The Kishwaukee College Continuing Education department will offer seven short-term training programs during the Spring 2024 semester. Kish short-term programs provide students with the skills and training needed to meet local workforce demands. The programs range from 11-20 weeks, allowing students to immediately start a career or build upon their skills with additional training.
