Wildcat fans can be K-State Proud with a T-shirt purchase at the Salina campus

SALINA -- K-State Proud, a Kansas State University student-led fundraising campaign established in 2007, is coming to Kansas State University Salina on Friday, Jan. 24.

Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are encouraged to stop by the information table in the College Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to make a $20 donation and receive this year's K-State Proud T-shirt.

All contributions to K-State Proud establish Student Opportunity Awards. These awards are allotted by a student allocations committee in consultation with the university's student financial assistance office to provide financial aid for students who have demonstrated extreme financial need or those who need temporary financial assistance. Special consideration will be given to students whose future at the university may be in jeopardy and to students who have exhausted all other forms of financial assistance.

Students and faculty members are encouraged to nominate students in need, or students may nominate themselves. Applications are received online, at http://www.k-stateproud.org, on a continuing basis, and awards are allocated year round. The awards are open to students on all Kansas State University campuses.

The nationally recognized campaign has raised $700,000 and made more than 300 Student Opportunity Awards since it started. Learn more about the K-State Proud campaign and meet some of the recipients of the Student Opportunity Awards at http://www.k-stateproud.org.
