Freshmen are invited to join Dr. Pat Whitlow, Director of the Office of Nationally Competitive Awards, on Wednesday, October 22 at 5:00pm in 200 Funkhouser to learn about the services this office provides.
Nationally competitive scholarships and fellowships are awards that are funded by sources independent of the University of Kentucky including non-profit groups, government agencies, and companies. Criteria for scholarships vary but generally include academic performance, financial need, community affiliations, and unique elements important to the sponsoring organization.
This session will introduce students to awards that are available as well as the appropriate steps to take to be considered a competitive applicant.
