The Noon Kiwanis Club is making 2021 scholarship applications available to high school seniors in Cowley County.
Two stipends, each in the amount of $500, will be awarded.
Students who plan to attend a vocational/technical school, a junior college or a four-year university are encouraged to apply.
Kiwanis is an international organization of volunteers committed to helping children and communities. Because of this service emphasis, the scholarships are awarded primarily based on the applicant’s volunteer activities in their school or community. Academic performance is considered to a lesser extent.
One way the Kiwanis Club seeks to connect to their communities is through sponsorship of the Builders Club at the middle school level and Key Club for those of high school age. Past and current members from these groups are strongly encouraged to submit an application, along with any high school senior who has actively participated in volunteer projects.
Application forms are available through the guidance office at Central of Burden, Dexter and Udall high schools.
Winfield High seniors can download forms from www.winfieldfoundation.com. From the menu, select Scholarships: Community Scholarships for WHS Seniors. Completed forms and documentation must be submitted by April 15.
The Kiwanis Scholarship Committee will select the stipend recipients and recommend them to the Noon Kiwanis Board. The Legacy Community Foundation sends all scholarship funds directly to the financial aid office of the recipient’s designated college.
