Health, Physical Education & Recreation Scholarships

Funding for Students

Emporia State is known for its students’ lower-than-average debt load upon graduation. A key to reducing the cost of earning a degree is locating funding in the form of scholarships. If you get a student loan, you will have to pay that money back. Scholarships are available and have different requirements for applying for them, but you will not have to pay them back.
