Scholarship Award Program

The Gwendolyne Hawley Trust Scholarship Award Program is designed to assist deserving post-secondary students who are blind or visually impaired with their education.  Students are selected for the award based on a variety of factors that indicate their high potential to make our investment in their future a worthwhile venture.

The Kansas State School for the Blind (KSSB) and its foundation, the KC Blind All-Stars, are responsible for distributing the Gwendolyne Hawley Trust on behalf of the Hutchinson Community Foundation.  The late Mrs. Hawley, of Hutchinson, Kansas, left this trust to assist blind students with their post-secondary education.  The amounts of the scholarship award(s) have ranged from $500 to $1,800.

Our Mission

To enhance employment options for the blind or visually impaired; education and leadership opportunities; and experiences in sports music and the arts.
