Preparing diverse scholars for future leadership.
The Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) at KU is a special and unique opportunity for all undergraduate students. The mission of the MSP is to recruit undergraduate students from under-represented backgrounds into various academic majors as a means of increasing the diversity of the student body at KU.
The KU School of Education is committed to enhancing and maintaining a diverse and dynamic faculty, staff and student population. A diverse student body strengthens the School by allowing a variety of perspectives to be integral to the School's programs, policies, and practices that more accurately reflect our diverse society and world. We need your help to increase our diversity within the professional careers in education, particularly, the health and teaching fields.
Our Multicultural Scholars Program is dedicated to you.
As a member of the Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) you will immediately become part of a community of students who will help make the transition to campus and to the KU School of Education a smooth and positive one. This program addresses academic, social, and personal aspects of your experience at KU, and after you apply and are accepted as a program member you are also eligible for specific scholarship funding.
As a junior or senior, you will also be expected to serve as a role model and assist newer students to the program who are beginning their journey in education at the University of Kansas - just like you did.
