Freshman scholarships

K-State offers several different types of freshman scholarship awards with distinct criteria. Eligible students are awarded only one academic or leadership scholarship, but supplemental scholarships can be stacked on top of those awards. The prestigious Presidential Scholarship, a selective interview scholarship, replaces any other award.
