We aim to make education at Cumberlands even more affordable than it already is by decreasing student dependency on federal loans and reducing the financial burden of earning a college degree. As part of our Cumberlands Commitment, and beginning in the fall of 2024, the University will introduce new measures to reduce students’ out-of-pocket costs.

This new program will offer on-campus undergraduate students a combination of scholarship funds and forgivable, zero-interest loans. Our goal with the program is to decrease total out-of-pocket costs with students paying, on average, no more than $2,000 per semester to attend Cumberlands. 

  • Students must complete the FAFSA as soon as the filing window opens in December 
  • Cumberlands will issue financial aid packages to students based on FAFSA information 
  • Students will continue to contribute state and federal financial aid to the cost of their education 
  • Students that have more than $2,000 per semester ($4,000 per year) out-of-pocket will automatically be offered the Cumberlands Commitment program as part of their financial aid package 
  • Enrolled students that maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) will remain in the program and have applicable institutional loans forgiven each semester 
  • Students must complete the FAFSA each year to maintain eligibility 

Presidential scholarships are available for first-time freshmen based on high school GPA. To qualify, a student must have at least a 2.5 or higher GPA when applying at the university. Presidential scholarship awards range in amounts and are renewable each year as long as a student maintains Satisfactory Academic Progress. There is no application, and scholarships will automatically be awarded once the student has been accepted and completed the FAFSA.

*Scholarships may be adjusted or removed based on financial need.

To be eligible, students must have completed the Governor’s Scholars Program the summer prior to their intended enrollment year and complete the form below to upload their certificate of completion.

Undergraduate Programs

Our year-round internship programs allow undergraduate students to work in several areas before they graduate. These paid opportunities span a range of studies, including, but not limited to:

  • Finance
  • Economics
  • Foreign language
  • Engineering
  • Information technology

Schools with co-operative programs typically have specific requirements to receive co-op credit. So, we designed our co-op program at the CIA to help students meet those requirements. As part of our program, students work on an alternating semester basis for at least three semesters before they graduate. This can include a summer work session as well. Since our Agency does not work with an established list of co-op programs, students will need to work with their schools to receive academic credit.

Our Graduate Studies Program is available to full-time students in accredited graduate or doctoral programs. As part of our program, students complete at least one 90-day tour before graduating. This program is an exciting opportunity for graduate students to gain real-world work experience. It is also an excellent opportunity for graduates to transition from academic life to a career in national service. Students have to go through our medical and security process. Interested in our Graduate Studies Program? Please submit your expression of interest at least 6-12 months before your desired start date.

Founded in 1969 by a small group of concerned Korean American community leaders in Washington, D.C., KASF began as a local organization with limited focus and funding resources. However, with the dramatic growth of Korean immigrant communities in the U.S. an ever-increasing need for financial aids for Korean American students, KASF became a national organization in 1989. While headquartered in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, KASF has seven regional chapters in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, and Denver…While all regional chapters operate under a single KASF bylaws, each chapter operates independently to raise funds, manage educational/cultural programs, and to award scholarships. The Korean American Scholarship Foundation (KASF) is a non-profit, volunteer-managed organization established to help meet the financial needs of Korean-American students seeking higher education.

Specifically, the foundation seeks to:

1. Assist Korean American students in pursuit of academic and personal achievement

2. Encourage community and civic service as an integral part of leadership development

3. Nurture the sense of pride and confidence in Korean cultural heritage and tradition

In addition, pending funds availability, KASF has also provided scholarships to qualified descendants of Korean War American Veterans. The foundation is operated by its voluntary-based Board of Directors and supporters and its operating expenses are funded by incomes from membership dues and local fund raising activities. In addition to their voluntary work for the KASF, many of our Board of Directors are also scholarship donors.

KASF scholarships (which range from $500 to $5,000) are offered to the qualified Korean American students (including foreign students from Korea). All applicants must be enrolled in a full time program in the U.S during the scholarship application year. If extra funds are available, other students (non Koreans) may qualify for scholarships. Specifically, descendants of American veterans served during the Korean War may qualify for scholarships (applicable to selective regions).

To apply for KASF scholarships, it is very important to follow the specific requirements and instructions of the region where the applicant’s school is/will be located during the scholarship application year as the type and amount of available scholarships may differ from region to region.

Note: You can only apply to the region where your school is located.

Application begins on April 1, 2024 and ends June 30, 2024 10:59pm CDT.

For twenty years, The Shawn Carter Foundation has been committed to bridging the opportunity gap that exists across the education system. We firmly believe that nothing should prevent any individual from reaching their highest potential.

Since its inception, The Foundation has provided college scholarships for young people who have talent and drive but due to mitigating circumstances their grade point averages fall below the minimum to qualify for support at other foundations and institutions. The students who receive support from the Shawn Carter Foundation are high school and college-age students facing incredible difficulties that distract them from functioning in school.

They represent an array of backgrounds: some come from single parent households and some are single parents themselves, some have grown in the foster care system or have faced homelessness, many are raising younger siblings or providing care for a family member with mental or physical health challenges, some have been victims of abuse, and the majority come from families that are simply trying to make ends meet due to poverty. These circumstances should not prevent students who want to go to college, pursue their dreams, make a better life for themselves, and give back to their communities. It is the Shawn Carter Foundation’s responsibility and honor to open the doors of education, travel, enlightenment and experiences to those that may never have thought it possible.

Everyone possesses a genius level talent and The Shawn Carter Foundation’s mission is to give a platform to achieve greatness.

Each student who qualifies can receive a maximum of $15,000 from admission to graduation to help cover expenses during their course of study. Funds can be applied to tuition, transportation, laundry, apparel, food and other necessities. An average of 145 students are supported annually with multi-year scholarships. Shawn Carter Scholars are studying at over 100 institutions of higher learning throughout the nation.

The application period is open from April 1 until April 30.

Jane Calmes was born in Coffeyville, Kansas, and spent her youth in Neodesha, Kansas. She attended Kansas University and later graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wichita State University in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science/Dental Hygiene. Jane was an accomplished dental hygienist and loved working with the public, all the while providing a necessary service with gentle thoroughness, for which she was noted. She married Mark Calmes in 1980 and together they had four children. Jane was also an ALS hero, having fought the disease for eight years through pure grit and determination. The family formed a very successful Walk to Defeat ALS team in her honor named Jane’s Angels. The team was formed in 2010 and continues today. Jane passed away peacefully at home on August 16, 2017, in the arms of her husband and surrounded by her loving family.

A Note from Mark Calmes

Jane was a fighter. She battled three major illnesses in a row - a silent heart attack, breast cancer, and finally, ALS. Every day she amazed me, especially with the courage she exhibited dealing with disease and the compassion she showed our family and others during her journey.

After Jane’s death, I began to think of ways to honor her and her courageous battle with disease, especially ALS. The idea of a scholarship fund resonated with me. Jane was always keen on education and the lifelong benefits it can provide. She insisted on our four kids getting a college education, and she volunteered at an after-school program with our church. So, as I thought about all of this, coupled with the fact that children of families dealing or having dealt with ALS are often overlooked and are collateral damage to the disease, it made perfect sense to help these kids. This collateral damage, which can affect and negatively impact children for a lifetime, needed to be addressed.

In addition to the physical and emotional toll faced by people impacted by ALS, the financial strain of the disease can devastate a family’s ability to plan for future expenses. Families impacted by ALS often do not have the financial means to support the pursuit of college degrees or vocational certificates.

Recognizing this unmet need, The ALS Association and Mark Calmes, of the Association's National Board of Trustees, established The Jane Calmes ALS Scholarship Fund in honor of Mark's wife, Jane, who lost her battle with ALS in 2017. The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide financial assistance to students pursuing an accredited college degree or vocational certificate, and whose ability to cover the costs is severely compromised as a result of their family’s financial burden of ALS. 

Eligibility requirements:

To be considered for The Jane Calmes ALS Scholarship Fund, an applicant must be:

  • An individual whose finances have been impacted negatively due to having a diagnosis of ALS themselves, or having a parent, guardian, or family member (living or deceased) diagnosed with ALS. Must be able to demonstrate financial need.
  • A high school senior, high school graduate, current postsecondary undergraduate student, or currently enrolled in vocational program;
  • Someone who is planning to enroll for a minimum of six credits per semester in undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year, in pursuit of completing a degree program;
  • A U.S. Citizen attending a U.S. school.
  • The ALS Association’s goal is to fund as many students as resources allow, at $2,500 per semester or $5,000 per year.

The Jane Calmes ALS Scholarship Fund is administered through Scholarship America.

Live application window: April 5, 2024 through May 20, 2024 3:00 pm CT.
