To promote and provide financial support through merit-based scholarships for higher education to the beneficiaries of active, retired, and deceased

military members within the Flint Hills region of Kansas.

We aim to maximize the opportunity for post secondary education through the

support and generosity of individual, community, and organizational donors.

Applications are extended to graduating high school seniors, current college

students, and those seeking a higher degree. The Combined Scholarship

Fund of Greater Fort Riley offers our military dependents and beneficiaries a

chance to pursue higher education regardless of their economic status or

their access to the GI bill.

About the Board

The Combined Scholarship Fund is a board comprised of volunteers from the local Fort Riley community who have committed their time and talents to ensure each year the CSF is a success. If you are interested in helping out in any way, or volunteering on the board, please shoot us an email!


They work diligently receiving and verifying information, as well as reading, judging, and rating essays -- with the help of an anonymous judging panel --and ultimately allocating and issuing scholarship dollars.
