Scholarships and Financial Aid

Your education is the key to your future, but it must also be affordable. UMKC strives to offer a top-rate college experience at a reasonable cost. Three types of scholarships are available to students at UMKC: automatic (considered when applying to UMKC), competitive Scholarships through the UMKC Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, and School of Education scholarships.


If you wish to receive financial aid assistance, you must be admitted to a degree-seeking program at UMKC and must enroll at least part-time. In order to qualify for scholarships and financial assistance, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can find more information about the types of aid through the UMKC Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.
