The Edwards Campus delivers a world-class KU education to the Kansas City metro area and beyond, helping adult learners start, change, or advance their career through high-demand degree and certificate programs.

Most of our 2,000+ students work full or part-time and many are juggling family responsibilities. Approximately 25% are first-generation college students, and 33% self-identify as an ethnic minority. We are committed to helping students complete their degrees and prepare for rewarding careers by removing financial barriers that stand in their way.

We invite you to support the KU Edwards Campus and its current and future students during the seventh annual One Day. One KU. campaign. Every gift counts! Our two priority giving opportunities are micro-grants and scholarships.

Help a KU Edwards student overcome financial barriers through micro-grants. Enrollment fees, transportation, and unexpected family expenses are often roadblocks for those who would otherwise have most of their needs met by traditional financial aid. One Day. One KU. micro-grant funds go to students with demonstrated financial need, helping eliminate obstacles that could take them off their educational path.

Contribute to a need-based scholarship supporting transfer students in the School of Professional Studies (SPS). SPS is dedicated to serving the needs of transfer students, a growing sector of college enrollment. The diverse student population overcomes many obstacles—tuition costs being a major one—to enroll in and complete their programs. Transfer students often have fewer funding options. The Transfer Scholarship provides critical tuition assistance.

In 2023, Edwards Campus donors gave more than $60,000. With YOUR gift, more students will be able to graduate, advance their careers, and boost the local economy and workforce.

One Day. One KU. Everyone counts, and each gift is important. You can make a difference in changing lives.

Thank you for your consideration.
