Continuing its commitment to Kansas families, Sterling College has announced two new scholarships for the 2020-21 academic year. The Sunflower Scholarship and the Heart of Kansas Scholarship offers institutional aid to prospective students who meet the criteria to be awarded, starting with the fall 2020 semester. Students interested in pursuing this scholarship may learn more at www.sterling.edu/admissions. The application is available online and the priority deadline for these scholarships is May 1, 2020.
“Sterling College has been a valuable resource to Kansas students since its inception. We are pleased to offer these new scholarships, the Sunflower Scholarship and the Heart of America Scholarship, to reach even more Kansas students with a quality, private education, right here in Kansas. These scholarships are another way we at Sterling are partnering with families to make education affordable,” said Dr. Scott A. Rich, president.
The Sunflower Scholarship is a $60,000 undergraduate scholarship that can be applied to any student graduating from a Kansas high school or home school, anyone who transfers to Sterling from a Kansas college or any resident of Kansas overall. The scholarship is guaranteed for $15,000, overall, per year for up to four years.
The Heart of Kansas Scholarship is a $64,000 undergraduate scholarship that can be applied to any student graduating from a Kansas high school or home school in Rice, Reno, Ellsworth, Barton, McPherson or Stafford counties. The scholarship is guaranteed for $16,000, overall, per year for up to four years.
Starting with the fall 2020-2021 academic year, the Sunflower Scholarship and the Heart of Kansas Scholarship offers financial assistance for prospective students who qualify. Kansas residents who have demonstrated financial need are also able to add the $3,500 Kansas Comprehensive Grant (KCG) to their financial aid package. The KCG is a state funded grant available to Kansas students through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The state FAFSA deadline for the KCG is April 1. For students who may not have finished their FAFSA process but who qualify for the KCG, Sterling College will be providing a $3,500 grant if students complete the process by May 1.
Sterling College has many scholarships available to students, including those who do not qualify for the Sunflower Scholarship and the Heart of Kansas Scholarship, including academic scholarships, arts scholarships, activity scholarships, endowed scholarships and more.
