Midwest Student Exchange Program

The Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP), previously only available for select academic programs, is now applicable to all majors of study at K-State for eligible students entering K-State in fall 2019.

The MSEP will reduce tuition by as much as $10,500 per year and will be equal to 150 percent of the in-state tuition rate. Additionally, all students who qualify for the MSEP will also be awarded the MSEP Enhancement Scholarship of $2,500 per year over four years ($10,000 total). For initial eligibility, the MSEP requires that students have a minimum 3.5 high school GPA and a 24 ACT or 1160 SAT.

2019 World Food Prize Nebraska Youth Institute

Mark you calendars now! The 2019 Institute will be held on Monday, March 4, 2019! The paper submission deadline is February 5, 2019.

The World Food Prize works to engage and inspire high school students to pursue future careers and educational pathways in STEM as it relates to agriculture and global food security. We work to identify motivated students, encourage them to pursue a higher degree, and expose them to aspects of food security in hopes it will become their next passion! Each year during the Nebraska Youth Institute, students come together at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln to present their research, connect with like-minded students from around the state, and meet with researchers, global leaders, and professors at their land grant university. Students who attend the Nebraska Youth Institute also earn a $500 scholarship from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources each year they participate.

Former participants have shown interests in international affairs, STEM research, government and politics, and agriculture to name a few. However, the World Food Prize Nebraska Youth Institute is open to all students, no matter their area of interest.
