Success begins with a dream. A dream to build skyscrapers. To find a cure for cancer. To write the great American novel.

Scholarships help make these dreams reality. For low-income students with no way to finance a college education, scholarships help provide an education leading to a fulfilling career. For students struggling to support themselves without the benefit of federal assistance, scholarships ease the financial burden. The University of Kentucky also has excellent undergraduate academic research scholarship opportunities for exceptional students.

And in order to attract the best and the brightest students to UK, there are also scholarship programs for alumni of the Governor's Scholars Program and Governor's School for the Arts.

All these initiatives are designed to make UK competitive with other top educational institutions in recruiting and retaining students with outstanding academic, extracurricular and civic achievements. But scholarship programs require support from our UK alumni and friends.

You can become a partner with UK in our effort to achieve academic excellence. You can make a difference not only in the lives of our students, but in the future of UK.
