KANOKLA NETWORKS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
KanOkla Networks was incorporated in the State of Kansas on December 14, 1951 to provide communications service for its rural members. The Company continues to strive to provide total quality communications service and community leadership to its service areas. A scholarship program for high school seniors was established in 1993 as a result of KanOkla’s commitment to education and to rural America’s youth.
In 2008, the KanOkla Networks Board agreed to expand the scholarship program to include not only high school seniors, but also students/adults of an accredited college, university or vocational/technical school.
