Grand Drive Scholarships

The Kansas State Fair Grand Drive Scholarship Program is to provide educational opportunities and recognition to youth livestock exhibitors who have demonstrated excellence, commitment, and integrity as ambassadors of the Kansas State Fair Junior Livestock Program. Ten $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually and recipients are recognized at the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive Gala.

Graduating seniors and post-secondary education students who have been part of our Grand Drive youth livestock show are encouraged to apply! Applications are due April 15th and can be submitted by completing the online application form which will go live on January 1, 2024. Applicants who have applied in the past but were not awarded a scholarship and are still eligible by enrollment standards are allowed to reapply for the current year’s scholarships.

The Kansas State Fair Grand Drive is committed to supporting the next generation in realizing their dreams. Your gift, regardless of the amount, will make a difference! Donors wishing to contribute to the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive Scholarship fund can do so by accessing the Hutchinson Community Foundation online donation.
