We are grateful to announce the Vanier Family recently made a scholarship gift of $300,000 for the 2020-21 academic year. This is a $100,000 increase in available funds which allows more 4-H’ers the opportunity to follow their scholastic dreams. The generosity of the Vanier family demonstrates the impact philanthropy can have. Please help us thank the Vanier family for this generous gift and their belief in Kansas 4-H members by sending email or notes to:

Kansas 4-H Foundation

Successful applicants receive $7,000 to attend a community college or career and technical education school, or $12,000 for a Bachelor’s degree institution. Please share with potential candidates that the deadline to apply for this life-changing scholarship is March 15, 2020.
