When is the scholarship application deadline?
The window to apply for KU School of Education scholarships is opened for roughly 90 days on an annual basis. Typically, the window will open early December and all applications from students are due in February of the following calendar year. Visit the scholarships application page for specific dates.
I am an undergraduate student planning to transfer to the KU School of Education. Can I apply for these scholarships?
Yes, you can apply for a KU School of Education scholarship as long as you are admitted to the KU School of Education for the fall semester.
If I am selected, how will the award be given to me?
These scholarships will be applied directly to your tuition bill. Scholarships are administered by academic year. Awards are given in two equal disbursements - one in the fall semester and one in the spring. So if a student received a $1,000 scholarship, $500 would be applied to his/her fall tuition bill, and $500 would be applied to his/her spring tuition bill.
Does summer semester enrollment count towards scholarship eligibility?
Scholarship funds are not available for the summer semester, and summer credit hours do not count in the total required hours.
What if I have other scholarships that, combined with a KU School of Education scholarship, are more than the cost of my tuition?
If there is a remaining balance after your scholarships are subtracted from your tuition bill, you will receive an excess financial aid refund via Electronic Funds Transfer from the Bursar's Office. Excess financial aid refunds are typically available six business days after your financial aid file becomes complete. The first day to obtain excess financial aid for a particular semester is typically one or two days before the first day of classes.
What if I my plans change after I have completed the scholarship application, and I decide to attend only one semester? Can I have my entire year's award applied to one semester's tuition bill?
No. Scholarships are not transferable between semesters. In this case, you will receive only one semester's portion of your scholarship award. Awards are granted based on the enrollment information provided on your scholarship application. *Please IMMEDIATELY notify us if you will not be attending*
I received a KU School of Education scholarship last year. Am I eligible for scholarships again this year?
Yes, you are eligible and must apply each academic year.
