Douglas Benson scholarship applications now being accepted

Submitted by Shireen Roshanravan

The College of Arts and Sciences Diversity Committee invites applications for the Douglas K. Benson Award, a $1,000 student scholarship that honors Benson's tireless advocacy on diversity issues at K-State and beyond. The submission deadline is March 24.

The recipient of the Professor Douglas K. Benson Scholarship will be recognized during the Student Diversity Summit.

Eligible candidates are currently enrolled full-time students in the College of Arts and Sciences with a 2.0 GPA or higher. The scholarship recipient must attend K-State as an undergraduate student during the 2020-2021 academic year and have made contributions to diversity on campus.

The following are required application materials:

A resume that includes personal contact information including K-State email address; degree pursued including major, minor(s), cumulative GPA, and year in school; scholarships and awards received; activities; and work experience. Resume help is available at k-state.edu/ces/students/

Any form of expression — essay, picture, drawing, dance, music, etc. — and a summary, between 150 and 200 words, describing the student's appreciation for diversity in a global world. If an essay is submitted, the essay cannot be longer than two pages with 1.5 line spacing.

Please submit your completed application to cas-diversity@k-state.edu no later than March 24. By submitting this application, students allow us to verify their academic standing at Kansas State University.
