The Vocational Education Scholarship Program was established by the 1987 Kansas Legislature to provide financial assistance to full-time students who enroll in designated one or two-year vocational programs.  Designated programs are located at various Kansas area technical schools/colleges, community colleges, Kansas State University-Salina, several four-year colleges and proprietary schools.  Only certificate and selected two-year degree programs are included among the designated technical programs.  

To apply for the vocational scholarship, you must be a Kansas resident (live in Kansas one year before attending a Kansas school and applying for any state aid), a graduate from an accredited high school (or received a GED from the Kansas Board of Regents), plan to enroll full time in a designated vocational program in Kansas, and take the designated vocational scholarship test.  The test is given twice each year.  


Approximately 240 scholarships are awarded depending on availability of State funds.  If you are interested in taking this test, see Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Mick for an application.  Applications for the November test are due October 9, and applications for the March 3 test are due February 5.

There is a $10.00 non-refundable fee due with the application.
