Kansas State University - Future Student Scholarships and Awards

About

Our office awards more than $248 million in scholarships, federal, state, university, and private financial aid every year. This year, we will process approximately 18,000 applications for K-State scholarships and 24,000 applications for federal financial aid.

Although these numbers seem substantial, our primary focus is to successfully guide each student through the scholarship and financial aid process. To assist in meeting this objective, every student at K-State is assigned a personal financial aid advisor. Our financial aid advisors are available to offer information to students and their families, such as how to apply for K-State scholarships or how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Manhattan and Polytechnic campus students

Your first step is to apply for admission by the priority application date associated with your desired entry term for full scholarship consideration. For Manhattan and Polytechnic campus undergraduates, your application for admission will trigger an automatic review of your eligibility for general university scholarships and awards. Additional application steps may be required for graduate students.

Olathe and Global campus students

Review the admission and scholarship application steps required at these campuses. Additional steps for scholarships are required.

Apply for admission

Step #2: Create and submit your K-State Scholarship Network profile

Once you are admitted to the university, you'll also want to create and submit a profile in the K-State Scholarship Network (KSN) system. KSN is a platform for you to share more details about yourself, your academic interests, and your involvement, which then matches you to additional scholarship opportunities.
