"Being a full-time employee while enrolled in 6-9 hours, bills can pile up with very little time for extra pay opportunities. Thanks to the Practicing Educator Sponsorship Program, I have stayed on top of my tuition payments, in addition to all other financial obligations. The sponsorship from KU has really helped while completing my doctorate program." – Laura Brogdon, ELPS Ed.D. Program Student More Info: http://soe.ku.edu/pesp Tags: #KUSOE #KUPESP #KULeaders
