Nationally Competitive Awards

A Note From Our Office Regarding COVID-19 (updated January 2021)

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.
