New K-State Scholarship Program Increases Affordability and Access

MANHATTAN, Kansas (WIBW) – A new scholarship program at Kansas State University discusses affordability for new incoming in-state and out-of-state undergraduates planning to start at K-State beginning in Summer/Fall 2023.

The state scholarship program offers new opportunities for new undergraduates planning to attend campuses in Manhattan, Salina, or Olathe. The highest general college price in the state for incoming freshmen, which requires a minimum 3.95 unweighted GPA and a minimum score of 32 ACT or 1420 SAT, has increased to a value total of $22,000 over four years.

For freshmen and out-of-state transfer students planning to attend Manhattan or Salina campuses, the new Non-Resident Wildcat Award will be available to domestic and international students beginning in Summer/Fall 2023. This award, which is automatically granted to eligible degree-seeking students who apply before the priority application date, reduces the non-resident portion of 50%-100% tuition for eligible students based on unweighted GPA, with no test score required. A 100% reduction means that a student’s tuition will be equal to state rates.

“With the success of our Missouri Match program, we wanted to provide students from any state in the country the opportunity to attend K-State,” said Karen Goos, vice provost, enrollment management. “As a leading R-1 university with a high pass rate, we want to provide all talented students with promising leadership potential the opportunity to earn a prestigious K-State degree.”

Each student’s application for admission is automatically reviewed for the university’s general scholarship and award offers, and the university affirms that students will be considered for the highest possible award. K-State’s Kansas Resident Awards, Wildcat Nonresident Award, and Missouri Match Tuition Award are all renewable as long as K-State general renewal requirements are completed by the student.
