Record number of online students receive scholarships

Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019

 

MANHATTAN — More than 120 students attending Kansas State University online through the Global Campus received scholarships this fall semester. The scholarships ranged from $500 to $1,500 each and totaled more than $77,000.

Two new scholarships available this semester were the America's Farmers Grow Communities Scholarship and the Nathan and Becky Smit Innovation Scholarship.

Global Campus works hard to offer scholarships to its students, who are predominately adults attending classes part time while balancing work and family responsibilities.
