IMPORTANT UPDATE: Remynse Is Moving in 2022!

In the past, the Remynse Scholarship has been a separate application, open from October 1 to December 1.

After receiving feedback from counselors and community partners who provided strong arguments for the benefit of a later application, the Kalamazoo Community Foundation has decided to merge the Remynse Scholarship application with the General Scholarship Application.

This means you’ll only need to fill out one application to put yourself under consideration for the Remynse Scholarship and the 60+ other scholarships the community foundation offers.

The new application will be open to students from January 1, 2023 to March 1, 2023.

Please come back in January and start your application. Have questions? Reach out to us at
