Kansas Scholarships

Nothing says “heartland” like Kansas. The quiet, peaceful atmosphere of the Great Plains makes this state a great place to study, and historic cities like Topeka and Wichita are wonderful travel destinations.

Kansas offers a broad range of educational opportunities as well, from large research institutions like Wichita State University and Kansas State University to small liberal arts colleges like McPherson. There’s plenty of financial assistance to go with this variety of choices, both from public and private sources.

Popular Kansas Scholarships

The Kansas Board of Regents, which governs the state’s public colleges, provides substantial financial aid programs for in-state students. Among these is the Kansas Comprehensive Grant, which ranges from $100 to $3,000.

In addition to state-funded programs like these, many institutions offer their own financial aid. The University of Kansas funds several scholarships, such as the full-tuition Perfect Achievement Award.

Applying for Kansas Scholarships

Most Kansas scholarships, particularly those funded by the Board of Regents, are available only to state residents. On the other hand, most institutionally funded awards are open to all students.

While many are based on need and academic achievement, many Kansas scholarship programs take additional criteria into consideration. For example, the Paul L. Flaherty Scholarship is reserved for students who participated in high school athletics. Likewise, the Whittaker KU Leadership Scholarship considers its applicants’ leadership abilities.
