This one-time grant is designed to assist undergraduate students who are approaching graduation and who have an outstanding university tuition, general fees and university housing balance for the required completion terms after all other aid is applied.
The K-State Completion Grant is sponsored through the generosity of the Vanier family and is a gift aid program. This one-time grant is designed to assist undergraduate students who are approaching graduation but whose circumstances have resulted in an outstanding balance with the University that prevents them from registering for a future semester and/or graduating.
Grants may be awarded to students who:
- Are admitted to a degree program and are enrolled in courses at K-State;
- Have and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher;
- Are within a year of graduating (2 semesters or 3 if including summer) and 30 credit hours with their first bachelor’s degree as documented by a degree audit and academic advisor graduation plan;
- Have documented financial need as shown on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or other documented financial need if not eligible to complete FASFA; and,
Have utilized all available aid, including Pell and Direct Student Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized.)
Award amounts will vary and be determined by the committee based on the student's eligibility and circumstance but will not exceed $2,500 a semester. Grants are considered a ‘last dollar’ award and must be used to pay existing or upcoming charges on a student’s University account after all other awards are applied. Funds are limited and once the available funds have been awarded for a given fiscal year, no additional students may be considered. Please visit Powercat Financial for free assistance reviewing options to pay for school and managing student loans.
