Apply for Scholarships

K-State offers a wide variety of scholarships for students like you. If you're new to the world of scholarships, it's important to know that a scholarship is financial aid that does not need to be repaid and is awarded to students based on merit (academic, leadership or civic accomplishments) or other specific criteria.

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, specific to the K-State Salina Campus, replaces any other award.
