Our Opportunities

Welcome to the University of Kansas Scholarship Opportunities Portal!

This site will allow you to view and apply for many of the scholarship opportunities available. For additional scholarship opportunities, contact your academic department, as not all departments currently post their opportunities here.

To view the scholarship opportunities for which you may possibly be eligible, you may click “Recommended” under “Opportunities” above. Please note that “Recommended” does not mean that you definitely qualify. Make sure to read the descriptions!

You may click on the “All” under “Opportunities” in the menu above and browse additional opportunities. It is important to note that this list shows ALL scholarships without filtering them based on your individual qualifications, so PLEASE save your valuable time by reading the descriptions carefully before applying. If you don’t qualify, do not apply.

Auto-match scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the Action column; this means no further action is needed. If the scholarship appears with “Apply” under the Action column, you will need to apply for that scholarship separately.

Please make sure you check the scholarship opportunity portal frequently, as new scholarship opportunities may become available.

If you have any questions concerning the scholarship application process, please email scholarships@ku.edu.

Rock Chalk!
