Spencer Duncan Make It Count Military & Veteran Book Scholarship

Thanks to a donation from the Spencer C. Duncan Make it Count Foundation, we offer scholarships to help provide additional money for veterans and military for the purposes of textbooks.

Eligibility:

  • Prior-service veterans, Guard and Reserve students at KU
    If you are using Ch. 31 VR&E, you are not eligible since the VA pays for all your books
    If you are using Ch. 33 Post-9/11 VA benefits, we will consider expenses that exceed your VA book allowance. Please include receipts that show how you exceed the VA book stipend.
  • Active duty (undergraduates only)
  • ROTC students (only those not receiving any ROTC scholarships)

Funding & Application Review Period
Application review will begin Sept. 1 and end Dec. 1 for fall semester (Feb. 1-May 1 for spring semester as funding allows) and awards will be distributed regularly throughout the academic year until we run out of funding.

*Unfortunately, we currently do not have book scholarships for spouses dependents and active duty graduate students but continually look for donor support.
