IUE Application Process

The IUE prepares teachers for success in urban classrooms by exploring issues of social justice and multicultural education.

IUE students receive scholarships and, in exchange, commit to teach in a Kansas City area partner district for at least four years following graduation. We accept applications from incoming freshman, transfer students and graduate students interested in teacher certification. 

Application Process

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2022. 
Students applying for the IUE Scholarship should complete the Initial Online Application. Once this is complete, an IUE representative will contact you with next steps.  
IUE applicants will be reviewed by the IUE team. Potential finalists will be contacted to participate in the IUE admissions interview as the final component of the application process.
