About the Scholarship Program

The Senator Robert J. Dole Public Service Scholarship Program recognizes Kansas high school students who have demonstrated leadership and community involvement. Drawing upon the spirit and experience of Senator Bob Dole's career, the Dole Institute emphasizes public service by helping students to understand the challenges and rewards of public life.

Each $1000 Dole 2014 scholarship is for one year only and is not renewable. It is to be used at KU, Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, Wichita State University or Washburn University. The 60 scholarships are distributed among the state's four congressional districts to ensure the broadest statewide participation.

The Dole scholarship program began in 2005 with a federal grant that funded 40 scholarships per year. In 2007, the Dole Institute received a second federal grant and awarded 128 scholarships, more than three times the number of scholarships as in each of the previous two years. Recent grants have allowed for the awarding of 60 scholarships.
For 2014, the grant will cover 30 scholarships.
