Scholarship Applications must be submitted to the KanOkla Networks Business Office by 5:30p.m. on April 1.


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.  

High School Seniors - The KanOkla Networks Scholarship Program will provide eight scholarships, yearly, in the amount of $1,000 each. Four of these will be awarded to Kansas students and four to Oklahoma students. The scholarships are broken down into three categories: two Academic Scholarships; a Vocational Scholarship; and a scholarship selected by random drawing of all eligible scholarship applicants. The minimum Grade Point Average required for eligibility for the High School Senior Scholarships is 2.3. When the Academic and Vocational Scholarship recipients have been selected, all remaining eligible applications will be entered in the random drawing. A student may submit only one application. 

Primary emphasis of the Academic and Vocational Scholarships will be placed upon scholastic ability and leadership qualities, with secondary emphasis placed upon financial need. 

An applicant must be a member in good standing, of the KanOkla Networks, who lives within the  KanOkla Networks service area or is the dependent of a cooperative member. A member is defined as a subscriber of the cooperative whose service address lies in the KanOkla Networks member exchange boundaries. Having service from KanOkla by virtue of a cell phone, wireless Internet outside KanOkla landline area, etc. does not meet the requirements for consideration.


The KanOkla Networks Scholarship Committee will make the selection of  the students to receive the awards. Only one family member may be eligible.  

Scholarship applications will be available, upon request, from all service area schools, from each Director, and from the KanOkla Networks Business Office, from January 1 through March 31 of each year.


Any scholarship application not completed in its entirety, with all required attachments, will be disqualified.  


Scholarship recipients will be selected in April and the winners will be announced by May 1st. Award recipients  will be invited to the headquarters in Caldwell to attend a Board of Directors Luncheon and to meet KanOkla’s  Board of Directors and employees.
