The Stella Harriss Scholarship ($500) is awarded annually each spring to a continuing education student at an accredited university, technical college or other learning institution. The League appoints a special committee to screen applicants.
The Stella Harriss Scholarship honors the memory of League member and education champion Stella Harriss, who was a chemistry professor at K-State for 36 years. From 1908 to 1915 she was an elementary principal in Fairbury, Neb. She received a Bachelor of Science (1917) and Master of Science (1919) in chemistry, foods and nutrition from Kansas State University. Harriss joined the K-State faculty in 1917 as a chemistry fellow. She became an instructor in 1918 and an assistant professor of chemistry in 1927. Harriss studies vitamin content of baby foods. Data for her doctoral research, "Resolution of Erythro Dihoydroxy Butyric Acid," was lost in the fire that destroyed Denison Hall in 1934. Harriss retired in 1953 and lived in Manhattan to age 103. Her bequest initiated the League's scholarship.

P.E.O International Philanthropies, or Educational Project
(PCE) was established in 1973 to provide need based grants to women in the United States and Canada whose education has been interrupted and who find it necessary to return to school to support themselves and/or their families. The maximum one time grant is $3,000 though lesser amounts may be awarded according to available funds and financial need. The grant may not be used for living expenses or to repay loans of any kind. It also may not be used to pay past educational expenses, including those previously paid with borrowed monies, credit card or student loans. While grants may be used for academic and technical courses, they are not intended to cover the cost of prerequisite courses necessary to secure admission into the final program of study. Furthermore, a PCE grant is not approved for use by those intending immediate continuation of their education beyond the program for which the grant is requested: e.g. associates to bachelors or bachelor to masters.
