Supporting MSP Students within the KU Community

Travel Scholarships

The MSP may also support you with additional funds for travelling expenses to study abroad, attend an academic conference, or a service-learning project elsewhere in the United States. While the stipend may vary, scholars can also receive up to $500 during their KU careers to put toward studying abroad and travel scholarships.  Priority for these awards is given to Junior and Senior students in good academic standing. The MSP may also support professional development opportunities such as conferences and seminars. Funds used for these professional and career enrichments are typically paid through the KU scholarship system, and current MSP scholars can inquire to their Directors.

The financial support from the program was a great help. I cannot express the gratitude I have for the support. Without the scholarships from the program I would not have been able to afford going through school.”  ~ Mike Mayabi, Pharmacy

The MSP program also allowed me to do things that I never thought I would, such as studying abroad in Italy. This was an amazing experience, and not only impacted my education, but my worldview as well. The program also helped with other school expenses, such as books and tuition, and made school more affordable.” ~ Erika Green, Social Welfare
