The Miller Nissley Scholarship was established in 2004 after the loss of their son. It was created to provide funds for students to be able to take a field trip to the Kansas State Fair. The family wants students to be able to experience a part of Kansas, learn about agriculture, visit the Kansas Veterinary Birthing Center to see a new calf and piglets, watch cows being milked in the Milking Parlor, drive a combine in Agriland and learn where our food is grown. The Miller Nissley Scholarship application is open to any Kansas Public School K-12 classroom attending the Kansas State Fair. The funds are for payment of gate admission to the Kansas State Fair only.
Applications are due by Friday, August 25, 2023. Scholarship recipients will be notified by August 31, 2023.
