Wounded Warrior Scholarship

Wounded Warriors at KU

KU is proud to offer a Wounded Warrior Scholarship for disabled veterans. Starting the Fall semester 2014, KU will award three academic scholarships up to $10,000 each, which are renewable for up to four years. The scholarships—available at the graduate and undergraduate level—are open to military veterans with a VA disability rating, or the spouse, primary caregiver, or child of a veteran with a VA disability. The scholarship provides for living and other expenses associated with pursuing an academic degree at KU.  For eligibility details, see the Wounded Warrior Scholarship flyer (PDF).

***Call for applications for the 2015-16 school year will be announced at the start of the 2015 Spring semester.***
