Nationally Competitive Scholarships

Welcome to the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at Kansas State University. I advise students interested in nationally and internationally competitive scholarships. Please come see me if you have questions or would like to talk about possible opportunities. You should consult with your department and/or Student Financial Assistance if you seek money awarded by K-State.

K-State has a proud tradition of our students competing for national scholarships; and in fact, these students, supported by the faculty and staff who mentor them, have achieved notable success. Read about our National Scholars to learn more about that record of success.
