Preparing Diverse Scholars for Leadership in the Future



The Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) at KU is a special and unique opportunity for academically well-prepared undergraduate students. As an MSP scholar, you join a community  whose goal it is to ensure your academic and career success. Each academic program within KU-MSP addresses academic, social, personal, and career aspects of your university experience and assists and prepares you to receive the maximum benefit of your education during your undergraduate program of study.  Academic programs within MSP have a Program Director(s) who serves as your primary contact throughout your KU experience. In addition, MSP scholars receive renewable scholarships.


The mission of the MSP is to recruit undergraduate students from under-represented backgrounds into various academic majors as a means of increasing the diversity of the student body at the University of Kansas and to provide supports and opportunities that will assist them in their academic success and career planning.
