MANHATTAN -- The 14th annual Kansas State University Scholarship Expo and Workshop will be 3:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, in the K-State Student Union Ballroom.
The event, sponsored by the office of non-traditional and veteran student services, the office of student financial assistance and the Union Program Council, will give participating colleges, offices, departments and organizations the opportunity to demonstrate their dedication to student success and promote scholarship opportunities for current K-State students.
