Career Readiness, Engagement, & Community

About

Welcome!

The Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) at KU is a unique opportunity for academically well-prepared undergraduate students to be supported during their educational endeavors. As an MSP scholar, you would join a community whose primary goal 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 prepares you to receive the maximum benefit of your education during your program of study. Each of the academic programs within MSP have a Program Director(s), who will serve as your primary contact throughout your KU experience. In addition, as an MSP scholar, you would receive renewable scholarships.
