Make a contribution!

Graduate School Excellence Fund

Your contribution will support the efforts of K-State's land-grant mission to develop excellence in academics, research, and scholarly and creative work among a diverse graduate student population. These funds serve as means to acknowledge the important contributions our graduate students make to advancing knowledge, teaching, and service at K-State and beyond.

Graduate School Accelerator Fund

Contribute to this fund to support the Graduate School's commitment to student success across a diverse graduate student population. Graduate students face a range of financial challenges (e.g., supporting a family, health expenses, emergencies) that can disrupt their degree progress. Awards from this fund will address unmet financial needs and help propel graduate students toward the completion of their degree.

UDP Excellence in Doctoral Studies Award

Initiated by K-State's University Distinguished Professors (UDP), this award recognizes exceptional achievement in doctoral studies. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in scholarship through publications and other accomplishments appropriate for their academic field. Doctoral candidates from any discipline who meet eligibility requirements may apply. Learn more about the UDP Excellence in Doctoral Studies Award.

Graduate Student Council

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is a student organization representing all K-State graduate students. GSC leaders provide a voice for the graduate student body in the Student Governing Association and on university-wide committees. Contributions to this fund support GSC activities and initiatives that serve to enhance the graduate student experience and recognize graduate student accomplishments.
