Sept. 27, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) -- University of Kentucky President Lee T. Todd Jr. has announced a new scholarship program benefiting the children of UK graduates who live out of state.

The new Legacy Scholarship will provide a differential grant between resident and non-resident tuition to incoming freshmen who have at least one parent who earned a degree from UK. The parent must also be an active member of the National Alumni Association.

"We want our graduates who live out of state to know that we want their children to attend this university," Todd said. "We believe this scholarship will add a strong incentive to our alumni and their children to consider UK when they are selecting a college or university."

Stan Key, director of the UK Alumni Association, said the association is very excited about President Todd's initiative to create Legacy Scholarships at UK, and to make them a part of the Alumni Association program.

"We talk to so many alumni who miss Kentucky and want to share their UK experience with the their sons and daughters. This is an opportunity for them to do so while contributing a geographic diversity that enhances the undergraduate culture at UK. Keep watch in our alumni publications and on our Web site for information about application procedures," Key said.

Membership information is also available by clicking here or by calling (859)-257-8905 or 800-269-ALUM.

The Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to any student who meets UK's academic requirements and will supplement any other scholarships that the student might receive.

The scholarships will be available for the first time to freshmen enrolling in the fall of 2002. In addition, the 2001 freshman class may also apply.
