We know that this semester has been challenging for all of our Robert T. Kenney Scholars due to COVID-19 disruptions, and hope that the adjustment to online classes has been going well. Current Scholars are still eligible to renew their Robert T. Kenney Scholarship for the 2020-2021 academic year. 

In light of recent events, we are simplifying the process for many of our Scholars. If you are entering your Sophomore, Junior or Senior year you will NOT need to complete the online renewal application. Scholars will need to submit some required documents through our online portal using the 2020-2021 Undergraduate Renewal Submission Portal. 

For these students, their renewal awards for the 2020-2021 academic year will be determined by staff after we have received and reviewed required documents, due by August 31. Most awards will be for up to your current award amount.

If you have received this scholarship for four years, regardless of your class standing or if you plan to take a fifth year to finish your undergraduate degree, you are also eligible to apply renewal of this scholarship. To apply you must complete the full online ASF: Graduate & 5th Year Renewal Application and submit your Student Aid Report from FAFSA, Transcript, and 1 letter of recommendation. Your application is due by midnight June 15

 If you find this semester to be a struggle academically, please reach out to us to discuss your progress. We are proud to have you as a Robert T. Kenney Scholar and want to continue to be a part of your journey. We believe that you can succeed despite these challenging times and are cheering you on!
