    Kenneth R. Rearwin Scholarship

    Deadline: January 31, 2019

    Kenneth R. Rearwin, a 1931 graduate of Salina High School, established a trust fund from which presently scholarships are awarded each year to recipients from Salina’s Central and South high schools. The scholarship program was instituted to help support programs of study at a university, junior college or technical/vocational school within the state of Kansas.
    Mr. Rearwin was concerned that close friends of his could not attend the college of their choice without the financial assistance of a scholarship. It was his desire that the scholarships be awarded annually to Salina High School graduates as an additional source of funding for their higher education.

    Many of society’s solid citizens were once students who didn’t qualify academically for the most prestigious scholarships and grants. Therefore, it was Mr. Rearwin’s preference to help stu-dents with approximately a “B” average GPA span 3.0-3.69 who have good moral character and have been actively involved in school and community activities.
    The Kenneth R. Rearwin Scholarship Committee currently awards scholarships annually to one or more graduating seniors of the two Salina high schools. The grants require plans for full-time attendance and are made by the Committee on an objective and nondiscriminatory basis.

    For more information, ask your counselor. 

    To fill out the application online, click here for the fillable application form.

    This scholarship also requires THREE references, and the scholarship committee has provided you with a form for each of your references to fill out, which can be found here.
