Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in Board University 2022, a program designed specifically to build the leadership capacity of nonprofit board members and boards across Kansas.

Board University is an eight-session program that provides unique learning opportunities to help strengthen current and future nonprofit board members. This scholarship has been generously provided through a grant from Cargill Cares to engage young professionals in nonprofit board service. Both those wanting to serve on a nonprofit board or those who currently serve, are eligible for a scholarship. At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to be matched with a local nonprofit board through our Kansas Nonprofit Board Match-up Program.
