Kentucky Governor's Scholars/School for the Arts Scholarships


The University of Kentucky offers special scholarships to students who complete the Kentucky Governor's Scholars and/or Governor's School for the Arts summer programs. The Governor's Scholars/School for the Arts Scholarships are for incoming freshmen only. The following scholarships will be awarded to eligible students, provided the student is admitted and has the qualifying test score and grade point average on file with the Office of Undergraduate Admission by March 1, 2014. No application is required.

Kentucky Governor's Scholars/School for the Arts Presidential Scholarship
Students applying with a minimum 28 ACT or 1250 SAT (Math + Reading) and a 3.30 unweighted high school GPA will receive a Presidential Scholarship, which provides in-state tuition and mandatory registration fees for up to four years of undergraduate study. Minimum test score requirements are based on the composite or total score from one test date. Combined scores, also known as a superscore, from two or more tests will not be considered.

Kentucky Governor's Scholars/School for the Arts Provost Scholarship
All other eligible students will receive a Provost Scholarship, which provides $1,500 per year, for up to four years of undergraduate study.

Students may receive only one scholarship through the Academic Scholarship Program. If a student is awarded a Singletary or Patterson Scholarship, that award will replace the Presidential or Provost Scholarship.
