February 8, 2011
The Kohl's Department Stores Kohl's Cares® Scholarship Program will award more than $415,000 in scholarships and prizes, ranging from $50 Kohl's gift cards to $10,000 scholarships, honoring young volunteers who have made a positive impact on their communities.
Nominations for kids ages six to 18 will be accepted until March 15 at kohls kids.com. Kohl's enters the 11th year of its scholarship program during a time when 55 percent of bachelor's degree recipients at public colleges borrow money and are finding education increasingly difficult to afford.
To nominate volunteers ages 6-18 for a Kohl's Cares scholarship, visit http://www.kohlskids.com. Nominators must be 21 years or older. Two nominees from each of Kohl's 1,089 stores nationwide will win a $50 Kohl's gift card, and more than 200 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.
