Additional Financial Aid Resources to Consider

In an effort to provide more information on External Scholarship Opportunities that may be available to you, we have provided a list of scholarship search engines and external resources that you can utilize to try to subsidize your cost of attendance.  You can access this list directly by clicking the link below.  Be sure to check the page throughout the academic year, as new scholarship opportunities can be added at any time since these types of scholarships tend to have changing application deadlines.

External Scholarships” refers to funds that are applied for and awarded by agencies outside of the University.  The UK Office of Student Financial Aid/UK College of Public Health has no part in the application or selection processes for these types of awards.  As always, it’s important to remember that an application does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.  However, the only way you eliminate yourself from consideration is by choosing not to apply.
