What People Are Saying

“Thanks to the Kansas Masonic Foundation, I can now go to K-State and get my major in Marketing without having to worry about the financial stress on me or my family.”

Melissa Holler, Student Kansas State University

“This particular scholarship program is very unique. Academics are important, but they’re also looking for a person who has a sense of life and purpose. A person who has contributed to their high school or community. There is no foundation that does the kind of work the Masons do for my student body.”

Dr. Pat Bosco, Vice President for Student Life Kansas State University
