Kuhner Scholarship Foundation

Scholarship Requirements

The Kuhner Scholarship Foundation was created by members of the Kuhner family for the purpose of providing scholarships to students in the fields of theology, food chemistry, engineering, or related sciences.  The Kuhner Family operated the Kuhner Packing Company and stockyards in Muncie from the early part of the 20th century through the 1940’s.  This scholarship  is automatically renewed for the four year college term as long as the student maintains a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better and maintains full-time enrollment status.  The award amount will vary each year.
