Financial Aid

For financial assistance for all levels and program locations, apply to Financial Aid and Scholarships, Strong Hall, 1450 Jayhawk Blvd., Room 50, Lawrence, KS 66045-7518, 785-864-4700, financialaid@ku.edu. Financial aid for Lawrence and Kansas City is processed through the Lawrence campus office.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid must be filed for you to be eligible for loan and grant programs administered by KU. Start the process early, before you know your admission status.

A small number of advanced-level field practicum placements may pay a stipend to students. Effort is made to assign these settings to students whose financial need is high.

For Ph.D. students, financial assistance, including tuition and significant salary, is available from the school through teaching and research assistantships in research and training areas such as adult and children’s mental health, aging, child welfare, corrections, social policy, spiritual diversity, or other areas of faculty grants and interests. Because of more than $6 million dollars in research grants, most of our doctoral students are able to obtain funding. To apply for financial support, you should so indicate on the application form and submit the application early. Apply by November 15 for fellowship consideration.
