The support of generous benefactors continues to make a difference in the lives of our students. Community scholarships are scholarships that a student may receive from outside donors as a result of the student's participation, activities, or qualities shown within their school and/or community.
Send all community scholarship checks for students attending FHSU to:
Fort Hays State University Student Fiscal Services Attention: Kara Berry 317 Picken Hall 600 Park Street Hays, KS 67601-4099
Please include the Community Scholarship Donor Form with your check.
In order for scholarships to be credited to a student's account before charges are due, we recommend that checks be submitted to Student Fiscal Services by the following dates:
FHSU cannot defer tuition payments based on scholarship funds that have not been received by Student Fiscal Services.
If a scholarship check is sent directly to you, please bring it to our office for processing. We are located in 317 Picken Hall (785-628-5892).
Funds are applied to all outstanding FHSU charges first: tuition, housing and miscellaneous fees. Books are not included as institutional charges. If excess funds are available after payment of institutional charges, the funds are credited to the refund option you selected when finalizing enrollment.
We process all scholarships in accordance with established policies and procedures (see Financial Aid Disbursement).
