  • The Kansas 4-H Scholarship process has been modified. These changes will take effect for the 2024-25 scholarship application process. Please review all of the documentation thoroughly. If you have any questions about the changes and processes that have been made, please ask Sarah Keatley (keatley@ksu.edu or 620-366-0035), Kansas 4-H Scholarship Coordinator.
