HAYS, Kan. – The eighth annual Student Awareness Day will be hosted by the Fort Hays State University Foundation from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, September 23, in FHSU’s Robbins Center. Awareness Day was created to further educate current Tigers about the importance of private support and fundraising.

Students who attend will be eligible for one of seven scholarships for use in the spring 2022 semester. Students will be entered to win one of five $100 scholarships and one $1,000 scholarship just for attending. Students wearing FHSU gear will receive an extra entry.

Students will also be entered to win an additional $500 award if they post a photo to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag “#AwarenessDay.”

“Thank you to Astra Bank for serving as our scholarship sponsor for this event and for helping us educate our FHSU students and making them aware of the many people behind the private support that Fort Hays State University receives,” said Ricardo Zamora, FHSU Foundation’s Director of Annual Giving.

FHSU students in attendance will also enjoy a free lunch. In years past, approximately 375 Fort Hays State students have stopped by to receive a free lunch and for the opportunity to win a scholarship.
