2021-22 School Supply Lists
Kansas Board of Regents just passed into law a new scholarship act. It is called the Kansas Promise Act. This is for those of you planning to attend a public community college or technical school. There are a few requirements attached to it such as choosing an eligible program of study (Information technology and security, mental and physical healthcare, advanced manufacturing and building trades, and early childhood education and development) and then signing an agreement to live and work in Kansas for 2 years following your college graduation. This scholarship will cover the cost of tuition, books, fees, and required materials (taking out the money that you’ve received in other scholarships and grants). This is something that you can fill out if you’ve just graduated this year from high school. It will be available for the graduating seniors for the next several years. So, if you are going to attend a community college or technical school, you should really look at this, because you could go to school for FREE, if you are willing to stay in Kansas for 2 years following college graduation. If you have questions, please let me know. There is a lot of information in this link. https://www.kansasregents.org/students/student_financial_aid/promise-act-scholarship I have emailed all seniors from the class of 2021 and the incoming seniors for the class of 2022 more information. Check your emails! Kelsey Beisner
