FMS Scholarship Application


FMS scholarship applications are due on or before March 1, 2024.

FAFSA and ISNAW Requirements

FMS requires students applying for departmental scholarships with a financial need component to have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or KU’s International Student Need Analysis Worksheet (ISNAW) by March 1, 2024.

Students may access the 2024-2025 FAFSA applications directly through the U.S. Department of Education. The 2024-2025 ISNAW will be available through KU Financial Aid & Scholarships (FAS). Please contact FAS if you have questions about which form to fill out.

Although the remaining departmental scholarships do not require the filing of a FAFSA or ISNAW, students interested in receiving any financial aid are strongly encouraged to file the applicable form to be considered for all types of financial assistance for which they may be eligible.

Rising Student Scholars

RSS students were awarded a four-year renewable scholarship by KU Financial Aid & Scholarships when they decided to attend KU. FMS will attempt to help fund the 2024-25 academic year renewable scholarships for all qualifying FMS declared majors. You must complete the FMS scholarship application (above) so the Department committee can determine if you meet criteria for any Department scholarship. This will not be an additional scholarship for you.  The FMS scholarship will be applied to help fund the four-year renewable scholarship which was awarded to you by KU Financial Aid & Scholarships.

Recipient Notification

Scholarship and award recipients will be notified by the Department’s annual student recognition ceremony in May or at a later date by KU Financial Aid & Scholarships.
