The Kansas State University College of Architecture, Planning and Design, known as APDesign, will host its first Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament on Friday, October 4, at the Manhattan Country Club, 1531 North 10th St, Manhattan.
The tournament is open to the first 24 foursomes to register and will benefit students not currently receiving financial support through the APDesign Scholarship Fund. The college, which has more than 750 students, awards more than 90 scholarships annually. The goal of this tournament is to increase the number of scholarships and opportunities for deserving students in the college.
The APDesign Scholarship Fund is a merit-based program with the goal of providing an opportunity for tuition assistance to hardworking, deserving students whose past performance in all areas point to continued academic success. Students who might not qualify for other academic scholarships are encouraged to apply, as extracurricular activities, volunteer work, work history, ability to communicate, recommendations and financial need, in addition to academic records and test scores, are all considered when evaluating candidates for scholarship awards.
The mission of the College of Architecture, Planning and Design is to be a comprehensive design community comprising all scales of the design and planning endeavor, informed by a culture of inquiry, focused on the significant issues facing our society including environmental stewardship, social equity, economic viability and aesthetic delight in support of the university’s mission as a land-grant institution.
