Scholarships

K-State awards thousands of dollars of each year in scholarships. They're awarded based on academics, activities, service and financial need.

Students are awarded only one academic or leadership scholarship, where the highest eligible dollar amount is given. Supplemental awards can increase these awards, but the prestigious Presidential Scholarship replaces any other award.

To apply for scholarships, complete the K-State scholarship application by the priority deadlines and submit any additional applications requested.
