K-State Global Campus increases scholarship offerings for spring semester

Thursday, February, 25, 2016

MANHATTAN — Kansas State University Global Campus has awarded 42 scholarships totaling $36,150 to degree-seeking distance students from across the U.S. and Canada for the spring 2016 semester.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of K-State Global Campus extending the university's educational resources to students and professionals throughout the state, nation and the world. Part of that effort includes providing increased scholarship opportunities for part-time, place-bound students who are not eligible for a large majority of scholarships often geared toward full-time traditional students starting college right after high school.

Scholarships awarded for spring semester include the K-State Global Campus Scholarship for Distance Education Students, Maurine Allison O'Bannon Memorial Scholarship, EdAssist Scholarship, scholarships in collaboration with the university's colleges and departments, and a new Military Spouse Scholarship with its first recipients receiving awards this spring.

The $1,000 Military Spouse Scholarship is available each spring and fall semester to military spouses who are registered through the National Military Family Association. Georgia Biggs, junior in animal sciences and industry, Dallas, Georgia, said being one of the first recipients of the scholarship made it possible for her to enroll in another semester at Kansas State University.

"I moved to Oceanside, California, to be with my husband who is currently stationed on Camp Pendleton," Biggs said. "Being able to go back to school has given me a huge comfort and sense of normality. Education has always been something I have been passionate about, and K-State made it easy for me to continue."

Along with Biggs, the following students received spring scholarships:

Jenna Gannon, master's student in academic advising, Andover, College of Education scholarship; David Delzeit, junior in dietetics, Colby, Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health scholarship; Elisha Morales-Reyes, senior in general business, Dodge City, College of Business Administration scholarship; Jessica Bauerle, master's student in curriculum and instruction, Hiawatha, College of Education scholarship; Kelsey Hall, master's student in youth development, Hoisington, O'Bannon scholarship; Nicole Hamler, junior in general business, Junction City, College of Business Administration scholarship; Daina Bitters, senior in dietetics, Lawrence, O'Bannon scholarship; Kevin West, master's student in personal financial planning, Manhattan, O'Bannon scholarship; Charles Conaway, junior in interdisciplinary social science, Medicine Lodge, College of Arts & Sciences scholarship; Shawna Harrington, senior in interdisciplinary social science, Meriden, College of Arts & Sciences scholarship; Nichole Schlesener, senior in general business, Osage City, College of Business Administration scholarship; Amy O'Grady, junior in food science and industry, Wathena, Global Campus scholarship; Christopher Petty, master's student in adult and continuing education, Windsor, College of Education scholarship; and Amber Morrison, senior in general business, Yates Center, College of Business Administration scholarship.
