Preparing Educators as Leaders

Student Mentorship

Let us help to provide you academic feedback and planning.  As a part of your academic advising experiences, we can share time and crisis management resources, connect you with career exploration options, and much more!

Multicultural Events & Activities

In addition to its focus on academics, the Multicultural Scholars Program features mandatory extra-curricular activities that provide opportunities for the students to attend cultural events that they may have otherwise not have had the opportunity to experience. These may include, but are not limited to, ballets, concerts, plays, and athletic events.  You'll also have an opportunity to be involved as an active member with the KU School of Education's various activities and student groups including social events, luncheons, and picnics.

Scholarships & Travel Abroad Opportunities

The Multicultural Scholars Program at the KU School of Education is financially supported by the commitment from donors who have been and continue to be strong advocates for the program. Various scholarships are available to MSP students at the KU School of Education, and individual amounts are to be determined by contract.
