Ad Astra and Saline County Scholarship to Continue

Todd PittengerSeptember 8, 2020

A pair of in-state, undergraduate scholarship opportunities announced in March by Kansas Wesleyan University will be continued for the fall 2021 admissions cycle.

According to the school, the Ad Astra scholarship is a $60,000 undergraduate scholarship (guaranteed $15,000, overall, per year for four years) that can be applied to any new KWU student graduating from a Kansas high school or home school, anyone who transfers to KWU from a Kansas college or any resident of Kansas overall.

The Saline County scholarship is a $70,000 undergraduate scholarship (guaranteed $17,500, overall, per year for four years). Any new KWU student who graduates from a Saline County high school or home school or resides at a Saline County address is eligible for this scholarship, regardless of whether they choose to live on campus during their college experience. KWU is deeply appreciative of the fact that Salina and Saline County support us so generously. This scholarship, made possible in part by the John K. and Donna Vanier family, is a way for Kansas Wesleyan to support these community students.
