Dr. William L. Richter, the retiring Associate Provost for International Programs, was honored with this award, which provides financial help to international students who are officially enrolled in any K-State program. International students with financial need and academic potential will be given priority. Each year, a selection will be made in the spring, and money will be available for awarding in the fall. Please check the guidelines to make sure you’re eligible.
About the Scholarship:
Kansas State University, the nation’s first operational land-grant university, offers more than 250 undergraduate majors and programs across three campuses, as well as a variety of global online courses, with more than 150 years of heritage and accomplishments. The university’s sprawling 2,300-acre main campus in Manhattan, Kansas (dubbed “The Little Apple”) includes comprehensive agricultural and research facilities, while the university’s newest campus, Olathe, is located in the Kansas Biosciences Park and works to expand partnerships between students, researchers, and businesses. “Leadership chances are always within reach,” a student observes. The administration is “very conscious of showing students what they are paying for and listening to student feedback in what prices should be for fees/services,” and the school is “very conscious of showing students what they are paying for and listening to student feedback in what prices should be for fees/services.” “At the end of every semester, professor performance grades are sent out to students,” says the university, indicating its dedication to excellence. Faculty members at this research powerhouse not only do “great research that is nationally known,” but they also endeavor to “pass on their knowledge to the students.” Teachers who “are good at making lessons engaging” or who lead review sessions “to better help students focus on tougher topics” are both recognized in and out of the classroom. (Students also say that discussion boards are “primarily used for involvement.”) Professors are generally lauded for replying “immediately and well to emails” and for being “approachable and truly interested in seeing their students learn and succeed.” Many international students, first-generation students, and students of practically every ethnicity, religion, and age attend K-State, as well as “many students who grew up on a farm or in other rural regions,” all of whom contribute to the university’s “great community ethos.” Traditions abound, and the Wildcat Way, as described by the institution, “instills this very real sense of belonging and family.” “Purple pride is taken extremely seriously” here, according to one student, who adds, “When we see that Wildcat, we know we’re in the same family.” Everyone is “very nice and proud of the university” at this “large school with a small-town feel.” There are “a myriad of possibilities for students to find their own space to grow and flourish in” at the school, and there are “a multitude of opportunities for students to discover their own space to grow and succeed in.”
Manhattan, a college town, “gives students from rural areas a more city-like lifestyle while simultaneously providing those from greater cities with the benefits of a small-town atmosphere (community, laid-back manner).” “It’s incredibly easy to juggle studies and a social life here because the bulk of the individuals who live here are students,” one student says. The neighborhood of Aggieville is “a dynamic magnet for activity every weekend and even on weekdays” thanks to its bars, restaurants, and shopping. “The adjacent gym facilities and hiking trails are lovely and a terrific way to get active,” says the author, adding that “the city and university maintain public pathways and trails for individuals who prefer to cycle or run.” All student amenities are “walkable,” and “many people attend parties, hang out with friends, and attend activities offered by the student union” for entertainment. Intramural sports are quite popular, and Greek life is “fun but not overbearing,” allowing students to “concentrate on their studies and devote their daily hours to ensuring they accomplish their schoolwork.”
