About the Different Tests

WHAT IS THE KANSAS SCHOLARS PROGRAM?

The Kansas Scholars Program is a scholarship program for Kansas kids going to Kansas colleges. The scholarships are the State of Kansas scholarship, Nursing scholarship, Teaching scholarship, and Minority scholarship.

The process:
1. Complete the Kansas Scholars curriculum
2. We will submit the names of seniors who are on track to complete the curriculum to the State in March.
3. The State will determine the Kansas Scholars.
4. If the student is identified as a Scholar, he/she can then apply for the above mentioned scholarship(s).

The curriculum:
4 credits of English
4 credits of Math (beginning with Algebra 1 or higher class. If Algebra I was taken in 8th grade, it can count toward this curriculum)
3 credits of Science (must be biology, chemistry, and physics)
3 credits of Social Studies
2 credits of Foreign Language (must be two years in the same language)
