Fall scholarships awarded to distance students through Kansas State University Global Campus

Monday, Sept. 14, 2015 


MANHATTAN — Kansas State University Global Campus has awarded $34,150 in scholarships to distance students across North America for the fall 2015 semester.

These scholarships assist distance education students in achieving their educational goals by providing financial support to complete their degrees. Scholarships awarded are the K-State Global Campus Scholarship for Distance Education Students, the Maurine Allison O'Bannon Memorial Scholarship, the Allan D. Sicat Scholarship, and other scholarships in collaboration with the university's colleges or departments.

"Financial support through scholarship assistance can often be the determining factor for distance students in completing their degree in a timely manner," said Duane Dunn, associate dean of K-State Global Campus. "That timely completion in turn results in improved career opportunities and increases the student's ability to contribute to K-State scholarship programs in the future."
