General Scholarships

Each year, more than 6,500 students received scholarships from KU Endowment funds.

KU general scholarships support incoming freshmen and students transferring to KU from community colleges.

School or department-specific scholarships benefit students in KU’s schools, departments or programs such as Study Abroad and the debate team.

Scholarships for residents of scholarship halls assist the academically talented students living in one of KU’s 12 cooperative residences.
