The Institute for Urban Education (IUE) Scholarship is an undergraduate scholarship program in the School of Education for students who are interested in teaching elementary or middle school education with a focus in the teaching of mathematics, social science, science, and literacy. The scholarship is specifically targeted at students who have a strong interest in becoming teachers in urban schools.

Students receiving IUE scholarships make a commitment to teach in an urban district following graduation in exchange for financial support. Questions regarding the IUE’s programs and offerings should be directed to Student Services at (816) 235-2234 .
