Kansas Honor Scholars
The Kansas Honor Scholars Program has been a KU tradition since 1971 and has honored more than 150,000 high school seniors—from all 105 Kansas counties and nearly 360 high schools—for ranking academically in the top 10 percent of their class. It is designed to promote academic excellence in secondary education, to reward high school seniors for their hard work and dedication, and to support our Kansas communities.
The program is made possible by KU Endowment, alumni donations and proceeds from the Alumni Association’s Jayhawk license plate program, and allows the University and the Alumni Association to create more scholarship opportunities for students
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kansas Honor Scholars will be recognized virtually for the 2020-21 school year. Packets were sent to each school that contained a letter of recognition, certificate and medallion for each recipient. The schools will distribute the awards to the students as they see fit.
