KU WOMEN 4 KU WOMEN FUND: Helping KU Women Students Succeed

Many women students encounter situations in college where they need a ‘lift’ in order to get beyond obstacles or challenges in their path. Women Philanthropists for KU has created KU Women 4 KU Women Fund to “send the elevator down” in order to assist women to fulfill their educational and career goals. This fund provides one-time assistance for currently enrolled full-time KU senior or graduate women students with an emergency or urgent need. This can include assistance for needs such as conferences, graduate exam application fees, textbooks, or job interview costs.  Applicants must be in good academic standing to be considered.  Note: We are unable to fund medical needs and/or expenses.

To Apply:

1. Complete the online form here.
2. Include your Degree Progress report with the form, or you can send this to emilytaylorcenter@ku.edu.
3. Sign up for an interview time here.

Please note that all information provided is confidential and will only be reviewed by the Emily Taylor Center staff working with the fund.
