Nationally Competitive Scholarships
Welcome to the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at Kansas State University. I advise all students interested in nationally and internationally competitive scholarships. Please come see me if you have questions or would like to talk about possible opportunities. You should consult with your department and/or Student Financial Assistance if you seek money awarded by K-State.
