Qualifications & Application Process
Those wishing to receive a scholarship need to complete a one page application indicating the class or activity, reason for requesting the scholarship and their annual income level. UFM staff will review the application, determine eligibility, availability of scholarship funds and issue a voucher for the amount of the scholarship being awarded.
Scholarships will cover up to 50% of the activity fee or a maximum of $100, as long as funds are available. Lesser amounts might be given as funds diminish. Income eligibility is determined using WIC guidelines or 185% of the federal poverty level.
Return scholarship applications to UFM Community Learning Center, 1221 Thurston St., Manhattan, KS 66502. See links above for scholarship application and income guidelines.
