SER Corporation Hispanic Scholarships
The SER Board of Directors is a body of business and professional people working together to help the Kansas SER Corporation carry out its mission of training and job placement for the socially, economically
and academically disadvantaged. The organization was founded in 1974.
As a result of fund-raising activities and donations from community businesses and organizations, a
scholarship fund has been established by the SER Board of Directors. College scholarships are awarded to
deserving Hispanic students.
The SER Scholarship Program is open to all Hispanics students (with at least one parent being of Hispanics
parentage), who have maintained at least a 2.75 (B-) cumulative grade point average (first time applicants
must have a 3.0 GPA), have applied for full-time status as a student at an accredited college, university or
junior college, and meet all admission requirements of the school selected.
Awards of $500 to $1,000 each will be granted for study leading to an associate or baccalaureate degree.
Scholarship awards will be paid in two equal installments in the form of a check made payable to the
school prior to Fall semester, and the second installment will be mailed prior to the Spring semester of the
same school year. Awards may be used to pay for tuition, required fees, books, and other related
educational expenses. Awards are renewable for up to three years or until educational requirements are met, whichever comes
first. All eligible scholarship recipients MUST complete the application process EACH YEAR to be
considered for renewal of the award. Students attending WSU automatically receive matching funds.
SELECTION OF RECIPIENTS
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of Academic record, leadership and participation in school
and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals, unusual
