Current and Former 4-H Members may apply!
- ONLY the newly revised Kansas 4-H Scholarship Application - 2017 (found above) will be accepted. Only ONE application form is necessary to apply for all Kansas 4-H Scholarships. Selection is based primarily on 4-H merit:
- 40% on 4-H Leadership
- 30% on 4-H Citizenship/Community Service in 4-H
- 20% on 4-H Participation and Recognition
- 10% on non 4-H participation, leadership, community service, participation and recognition in school and community.
Following ranking on the above criteria, selection is based on specific scholarship requirements (i.e. residence, post-secondary educational institution, major, year in school, etc.)
- Each application MUST be accompanied by:
- a transcript of grades
- two letters of reference - one from school personnel and one from a non-related 4-H leader or non-related current employee of
K-State Research & Extension
Letters of reference are most helpful if they describe leadership and achievement results of the 4-H'er.
