Each year, the H&R Block Foundation, partnering with Donnelly College, offers scholarships to a number of Donnelly students as part of the Bloch Scholars Program. This scholarship provides the opportunity to earn an associate degree from Donnelly College and continue on to the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) or Rockhurst University to earn a bachelor's degree.

Students applying for professional programs (Dental, Medical, Nursing, Pharmacy, Law, Architecture) and Middle and Secondary Education are excluded. Instead, students must pursue a bachelor’s degree in a related program (example: 1. Bachelor of Arts or Science toward a Master of Arts in Teaching, 2. Bachelor’s Degree in Biology or Chemistry towards a professional program).

Please Note: Donnelly College students in the Nursing and Bachelor's programs are not eligible for the Bloch Scholars Program
