Imagine being a student at Kansas State University, working hard to earn a degree, when something unexpected happens that makes it financially impossible for you to continue your studies. Imagine that gut-wrenching, sick feeling in the pit of your stomach as you see your dreams slipping away. Now imagine that your fellow students all chip in and give you the money you need to get through the semester or year. Sound unbelievable? It’s not. That very scenario has played out many times each semester for the past seven years at K-State thanks to K-State Proud.
Guided by the Student Foundation, the K-State Proud campaign is all about students helping students. Meet some of the Student Opportunity Award recipients.
