Scholarships Awarded to Academic Advising Students

Kansas State University’s Division of Continuing Education has awarded more than 20 scholarships to students from across the country for the fall 2013 semester. Twelve of the recipients are students in the master’s in academic advising program.

These scholarships include the inaugural Allan D. Sicat Scholarship, given to military veterans or active duty military students working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree through the division’s distance education program. One student per year is granted $1,500 and the recipient can reapply for subsequent years.

The Division of Continuing Education Scholarship for Distance Students offers $900 to undergraduate students and $1,200 to graduate students enrolled in a Kansas State University distance education degree program.

The Maurine Allison O’Bannon Memorial Scholarship provides $1,000 scholarships for students age 25 or older. This scholarship honors O’Bannon, who graduated from the university in 1915.

The Office of Diversity Scholarship is a $1,000 award to a student from a historically underrepresented group enrolled in a distance degree program at the university.
