Architecture inaugural alumni and friends golf tournament

By Thom Jackson

The Kansas State University College of Architecture, Planning and Design will host its inaugural Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament on Friday, Oct. 4, at the Manhattan Country Club.

The tournament is open to the first 24 foursomes to register and will benefit the students not currently receiving financial support through the APDesign Scholarship Fund. The college has more than 750 students and awards more than 90 scholarships annually. The goal of the tournament is to increase the number of scholarships and opportunities for the deserving students in the college.

Corporate, and hole sponsorship opportunities exist and interested parties should contact Damon Fairchild, director of development, at 785-532-7524 or damonf@found.ksu.edu. Further information on the event and sponsorship levels can be found online.

The APDesign Scholarship Fund is a merit-based program with the goal of providing an opportunity for tuition assistance to hardworking deserving students whose past performance in all areas point to continued academic success. Students who might not qualify for other academic scholarships are encouraged to apply, as extracurricular activities, volunteer work, work history, ability to communicate, recommendations and financial need, in addition to academic records and test scores, are all considered when evaluating candidates for the scholarship award.
