  • 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.

    Christina Hixson, of Las Vegas, Nev., created the Hixson Opportunity Awards, which provides 11 KU freshmen each year with $5,000 renewable scholarships.
    Some Hixson scholars share their poignant stories in this video.

    One of the most significant benefits of a gift is the power to transform students’ lives. With scholarship support, KU students have amazing opportunities at their fingertips.
