One Day. One KU. has ended but your support makes a difference every day. You can still make a gift.
Edwards Campus

The KU Edwards Campus (KUEC) 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. Some quick facts about our 2,500+ students include:

  • 64% work part-time, 36% work full-time
  • Average student age is 27 years old 
  • 57% graduate students, 43% undergraduate students
  • 25% are first-generation college students 
  • 31% self-identify as an ethnic minority

We invite you to support the KU Edwards Campus and its current and future students through our two priority giving opportunities for the 2022 One Day. One KU. campaign.

Contribute to a new needs-based scholarship supporting transfer students in School of Professional Studies programs at the KU Edwards Campus. The School of Professional Studies is dedicated to serving the needs of transfer and nontraditional students, a growing sector of college enrollment. The school offers critical, in-demand programs to meet the talent needs of employers in Greater Kansas City and beyond. The diverse student population overcomes many obstacles—tuition cost being a major one—to enroll in and complete their programs. Transfer students face large tuition gaps and fewer funding options. The new Transfer Scholarship will provide critical tuition assistance. 

Help a student overcome financial barriers to furthering their education through micro-grants. Enrollment fees, transportation and 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 on the Edwards Campus with the most demonstrated financial need, allowing them to focus on their educational goals and separate financial barriers from their decision to enroll.

In 2021, more than 65 donors gave over $16,000, making it a record-setting One Day. One KU. event. Most importantly, funds given over the years have helped launch dozens of students into their academic journey, giving them the vital support they needed to continue their education.

With your gift, more students will be able to pursue the next step in their education, advance their career and boost the local economy and workforce. 

With One Day. One KU., even small gifts can truly make a difference in changing lives. Thank you for your consideration.
