Some scholarships have a financial need component. To be considered for these
Merit Plus Need Scholarships, students must complete the annual
FAFSA so financial
need can be determined. For more information about filing the
FAFSA, please visit
the Financial Aid and Scholarships Web site.
Private Scholarship Applications
The scholarships listed here are from agencies outside KU who requested their
scholarships be publicized to our students. These scholarships vary
in their qualifications, requirements, and deadlines, so all
students are encouraged to pursue the opportunities listed here.
If you do receive a scholarship from any outside agency, you
should report these scholarships in Enroll & Pay at sa.ku.edu
(Student Center > Accept/Decline Awards, Page 2) or notify FAS by email, mail, or
fax. If you report by email
, mail, or fax, please indicate the scholarship name, amount,
and term (fall/spring/summer) as well as your first and last name
initials (please do not include your full name for security reasons),
KUID number, permanent address and phone number, and day and month
of birth (please do not include year for security reasons).
Many scholarship applications consider financial need as well as
academic performance. This portion of the application, also known as
a Need Analysis, must be completed and certified by
Financial Aid and Scholarships (FAS).
Please print, complete and submit the
General Need Analysis Request Form
along with information from the donor preferably 2 weeks prior to the scholarship
application deadline. If you have questions about Need Analysis, please
