Supporting MSP Students within the KU Community
Multicultural Business Scholars

The Multicultural Business Scholars Program (MBSP) is a unique scholarship and mentoring program that seeks to create opportunities for diverse students to excel academically, professionally and personally. Through the implementation of intentional interactions, this program caters to holistic student development.

Program benefits include alumni and faculty mentoring, individual and group meetings, professional networking and development opportunities, and social programming. The ultimate goal of this program is to retain and graduate underrepresented students, and to connect them with post-graduate experiences that lead them to a successful career of their choice.

"Scholars benefits from one-on-one meetings with program directors to discuss academic progress, networking and mentoring opportunities with peers and program alumni, monthly program meetings with campus partners and professionals from various industries, and cultural programming events that enable the development and enhancement of supportive relationships. Students are able to develop a sense of belonging early in their academic career, and identify resources that can support them throughout their time at KU." ~ Steven Johnson Jr., Director of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Student Programs in the School of Business



"For me, MBSP has been a program that has not only helped me excel academically in the university, but has also helped connect me with new opportunities and even other scholarships that have enabled me to take my experience here at KU to a new level that I may not have been able to achieve on my own." ~ Jasmine Moore, Senior MBSP scholar in the School of Business
