OKTOBERFEST 2020 SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
When the Oktoberfest founders began this event, they intended to use the proceeds from this heritage festival as a way to reinvest in the local community. At the heart of this reinvestment is the Volga German Centennial Association Oktoberfest Scholarship. Over the life of this award, thousands of scholarship dollars have been given to Volga German descendants, and we are proud to keep it going!
This scholarship is intended for a Volga-German descendant that plans on attending Fort Hays State University or North Central Kansas Technical College full time. A non-renewable $500 scholarship will be awarded to one Fort Hays State University student and one North Central Kansas Technical College student. Application deadline is February 15, 2021.
