Give Back in Kansas The Give Back program is dedicated to providing scholarships and mentoring to students who've faced adverse challenges during their youth-- such as the incarceration of a parent, homelessness, and foster care. The scholarships in Kansas, funded by Veronica and Peter Mallouk, work to change lives and communities through education. Aside from monetary support, the Give Back scholarship works to serve as a resource of educational and personal support for students as they pursue a college degree. Students receiving the Give Back scholarship can attend one of the four university partners in Kansas at no tuition, room, and board cost. Kansas State University, Wichita State University, Baker University, and Pittsburg State University are proud partners.
Ottawa High School is excited for Mackenzie Cunningham & Devan Duarte, who has earned this opportunity. We now have three Give Back scholars at Ottawa High School. Students have the ability to apply for this opportunity at the start of their freshmen year at OHS. Our counseling department sends information to students and families who meet the qualifying guidelines in the early fall when the application process opens.
