High school students in the Kansas City area, state of Colorado and Houston area who plan to attend Kansas State University are encouraged to apply for Wabash CannonBall scholarships.

The Wabash CannonBall scholarships are funded by the black-tie gala events in Kansas City, Denver and Houston. Sponsorship opportunities as well as the Fund a Wildcat program raise scholarship money for students in each region.

Kansas City
Since the inaugural Wabash CannonBall Kansas City in 2007, nearly $2 million has been raised for Kansas City-area high school students to attend K-State.

In 2015, 40 scholarships worth $2,500 each will be awarded for the following academic year with opportunity for renewal. Recipients will be announced in February.
