KU School of Education Scholarships

Since 1958, the KU School of Education has offered financial support through academic scholarships to thousands of students. These scholarships are awarded to students beyond the scholarships also made available through the university as a whole. Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and are available for KU School of Education students, regardless of major, program, or level of enrollment. KU School of Education students only need to complete the application process to be considered for an award. A committee comprised of KU School of Education faculty review the scholarship applications and make award decisions based on the following considerations:

  • Academic performance (GPA) at KU
  • Education-related extracurricular activities
  • Work-related activities
  • Evidence of involvement in the education profession
  • Evidence of commitment to the education profession
  • Record of scholarly activities
  • Specific donor criteria
  • Financial need as determined by the FAFSA/ISNAW
