FIHE administers the program in cooperation with the Kansas Independent College Fund.

This year, the UPS Educational Endowment Fund distributed $1.8 million for its scholarship program, bringing the total amount of scholarships awarded to over $37 million.

An additional $400,000 in competitive grants will be distributed to private colleges and universities this year to improve educational services for students and encourage collaboration among colleges.
