The 2019 Scholarship Deadline WAS March 29, 2019.  Winners will be notified by their County Clerk in May.  Thank you and good luck to all who submitted an application!


The Kansas County Clerks' and Election Officials' Association awards scholarships annually to Kansas high school seniors and college freshmen and sophomores, provided they carry a minimum 3.0 GPA.

The scholarships are for those students who major in Journalism, Political Science, Communications, or Business.  This scholarship has been in place for several years and was started by the funds the KCCEOA received from the Associated Press and major news outlets for election night reporting. The bulk of the funding now comes from donations and from funds received through a silent auction held annually at the spring conference of the association. Conference participants bring items either donated or purchased for the auction and the conference attendees bid on them throughout the conference.

This scholarship program has awarded hundreds of scholarships to the youth of Kansas over the years and hopes to continue to do so in the years to come.
