Powering Our Economy, Empowering Education.
KCOCA is an organization that is dedicated to providing educational incentives, opportunities, and assistance to Kern County high school students who have demonstrated an interest in pursuing higher academic learning after completing high school, and for those who have an interest in, or a connection to, the oil & gas, agriculture, construction, utility and energy industries. The KCOCA Scholarship Committee seeks to help fund and support qualified students by helping to fill the unmet financial needs of students pursuing educational opportunities at accredited colleges, universities and technical institutions.
KCOCA seeks to assist local students who plan to remain in, or return to, Kern County after completing their post-secondary education because KCOCA recognizes that the continued education of our youth benefits our entire community.
