Veterans Upward Bound

The University of Kansas TRIO Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is an education and skills program designed specifically to serve the needs of today's veterans. Our mission is to provide eligible veterans with academic and career advising, classroom instruction, and other academic services, which will allow the student to develop the necessary skills to enter into, and to succeed in, programs of post-secondary education.

Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)​

The University of Kansas is one of only some 50 U.S. universities with a full offering of Army, Air Force, and Naval ROTC programs. All ROTC programs offer scholarships that pay tuition and fees, furnish books and uniforms, and provide a monthly living allowance.

Graduate Military Programs

The Office of Graduate Military Programs (GMP) assists military service members in obtaining advanced civilian educational degrees. As the liaison between the University of Kansas and the Department of Defense (DOD), the GMP office coordinates with the U.S. Armed Forces’ academic institutions and combatant commands to develop specialized academic programs that meet military requirements.
