Kansas Livestock Foundation Scholarships

The Kansas Livestock Foundation (KLF), in conjunction with Merck Animal Health, GoBob Pipe & Steel, Hampel Oil and the Kansas CattleWomen, is offering several scholarships for the 2022-23 school year. By submitting an application, you apply for all the scholarship categories for which you qualify. Each candidate is eligible to win only one scholarship.

The number of scholarships awarded in each category will be dependent upon the number of qualified applicants and funds available.
