With 16,000+ students from all 50 states and more than 85 countries, the UMKC community is enriched by their diverse perspectives. Sometimes these students need extra support on their way to discovering and creating their perfect career.

You can contribute to a specific area of need that will directly help students, including:

Scholarships

Scholarships are essential to sustaining the dynamic mix of students that contributes to the best possible learning environment for our campus community. Scholarships provide greater opportunities for talented students who cannot afford the full cost to attend UMKC. Your gift will enable UMKC to continue educating engaged local and global citizens and leaders.

Travel Stipends/Study Abroad Funding

Students find coursework in a foreign country stimulating and their encounters outside the classroom educational and exciting. Students also return to UMKC with a broader, deeper understanding both of another country and of their own cultural background. UMKC offers hundreds of programs in more than 60 countries that are consistently in need of donor funding. In addition, travel stipends allow students to benefit from attending educational workshops, conferences and competitions.
