Deadline extended to apply for nontraditional student scholarships for women

Submitted by Tresa Landis

K-State nontraditional undergraduate or graduate women students are invited to apply for the American Association of University Women, or AAUW, Manhattan Branch scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year. Deadline for submission has been extended to Monday, April 19.

Candidates must be considered full time according to K‐State standards and have at least two complete semesters of credit remaining before graduation to qualify. Students taking courses solely through distance education are not eligible. Candidates must be returning to school after at least a three-year lapse in education, which may be continuous or not. Applicants may already have returned to college after the time-lapse.

Up to three incentive grants of $1,000 each and one for $1,500 are available. The application is available on the American Association of University Women Manhattan Branch website or the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation website.

The Manhattan branch of AAUW will celebrate its 100th anniversary virtually in May 2021. It was organized in 1920 and is one of 1,000 branches nationwide. Today, the association has more than 170,000 members and is a premier organization for providing educational funding for women and girls. Kansas State University is one of 800 college and university partners across the nation.

Visit the Manhattan Branch website or email manhattanksaauw@gmail.com to learn more about national fellowships and grants, branch monthly meetings and programs, and membership benefits. Membership is open to anyone holding an associate, equivalent, or higher degree. E-student affiliation for all full-time K-State undergraduate students is free.
