Civic Leadership Scholarship

The objective for the K-State Civic Leadership Scholarship competition is to identify and reward exceptional high school seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to serving others in their community, school or place of worship.

This competition rewards students who are making a difference and demonstrating creativity by developing projects and programs with a lasting impact on those they serve.

Finalists will be selected by a committee of campus and community leaders and must participate in an on-campus interview and recognition event. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend.
