Encourage an undergrad to apply for the Morse Scholarship

Submitted by Cailin Riley

Do you know undergraduate students who want to make the world a better place? Let them know that they can get started this summer! K-State Libraries is now accepting applications for the 2023 Marjorie J. and Richard L.D. Morse Family and Community Public Policy Scholarship.

The $5,000 scholarship funds a student who has planned an ambitious project or internship that impacts the quality of family and community life. Applications will be accepted until April 3.

Since 2001, the scholarship has awarded $65,000 to undergraduates who were interested in public policy and community service and chose to put those passions to work for the benefit of others.

Past recipients have:

  • Traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, to work with a human rights organization.
  • Worked with the City of Manhattan to improve transportation and bicycle paths.
  • Taught nutrition and biology to Kansas City-area youth by engaging them with a community garden.

Let your students know about the award and application process by sharing the Morse Scholarship website.
