Annually, MKN provides multiple scholarship opportunities for TRIO and GEAR UP scholars within Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. Recipients are recognized for their academic achievements, involvement in their community and/or their ability to articulate how TRIO/GEAR UP has played a role in their lives. (Students must be nominated by a current MKN member to be considered.)

The MKN Scholarship competition is live and all nominations are Due by March 15th!
