Truman scholarship campus deadline approaching

Submitted by Kali Poenitske

Campus applications for the Harry S. Truman Scholarship are due March 22.

Kansas State University is permitted to nominate up to four individuals to compete nationally. The Truman scholarship awards up to $30,000 to support graduate study for students who seek careers in public service and aspire to leadership on issues of public policy. Since 1980, K-State students have competed successfully more 30 times.

Students eligible to apply in this upcoming application cycle must plan on graduating between December 2020 and August 2021. Students also must be U.S. citizens or U.S. nationals, rank in the top quarter of their class, and have an excellent record of leadership and service.

Contact Jim Hohenbary, director of nationally competitive scholarships, at jimlth@k-state.edu to obtain a copy of the campus application or if you have questions regarding potential candidacy.
