Robinson Scholars

Creating opportunities for eastern Kentucky’s first generation youth

The Robinson Scholars Program serves first generation high school and college students in 29 eastern Kentucky counties through innovative college enrichment programming for high school students and scholarship opportunities for those selected to be Robinson Scholars. Our mission is to empower our students to complete a baccalaureate degree at the University of Kentucky and provide pathways for them to contribute to their communities through active citizenship.

Our vision is for the University of Kentucky to be the national model for success in first generation programs. As one of the nation’s longest running programs of its kind, the Robinson Scholars Program serves as a foundation for first generation students to See Opportunity.
