Kansas All-Star Scholars to Begin Accepting May 2013 Graduate Applications Today
$1,000 Scholarships Available for All Sumner County High School and Mulvane High School Graduating Seniors
MULVANE, KS – The Kansas All-Star Scholars Fund announced today that it will begin accepting applications for $1,000 scholarships available to all seniors who graduate in May 2013 from local high schools in Sumner County and Mulvane school districts. Applications will be available online beginning Friday, March 15, 2013.
Students or parents can apply online; the process is simple and will take only a minute to complete. No personal financial information is required, as these scholarships are based neither on need nor merit.
High school seniors who have attended Sumner County or Mulvane high schools for at least 11th and 12th grades (two years) are eligible. Post-secondary institutions that qualify for the one-time scholarship include four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, vocational and technical schools, and specialized trade training.
Additionally, to apply students do not need to identify the specific school they may attend in the fall. Students have adequate time after registering to apply to the school of their choice, be accepted and then provide that information to the Kansas All-Star Scholars Fund to receive their scholarship.
After registering, applicants must provide a copy of a letter of acceptance from a post-secondary institution and a class schedule or other proof of enrollment on or before September 1, 2013. Scholarship funds will be sent directly to the institution where the student is enrolled.
Questions regarding the eligibility of a post-secondary institution or other aspects of the fund can be submitted to Leanna.Carnahan@kansasstarcasino.com. However, if a student or their family is unsure whether they qualify or a school qualifies, they are still encouraged to register online prior to the April 15th deadline. No applications will be accepted after this date.
