KU Endowment 101 — Making KU Affordable

Access to a University of Kansas education should not be limited by a student’s financial circumstances. Investments in endowed scholarships ensure support for a diverse, vibrant community of students who learn from one another and enrich KU.

Donors provide annual scholarship support for about 6,500 students at KU, but many more of the 28,000 currently enrolled could use some assistance. In fact, about 59 percent of them apply for financial aid.

As state support wanes, investments in scholarship funds are more crucial than ever. For much of KU’s history, tuition costs were low enough that most Kansas families could afford to pay. Today, that is no longer the case.
