Breathitt Undergraduate Lecture

Established to honor Edward T. Breathitt, an eminent Kentuckian (Governor of KY, 1963-67) and an outstanding alumnus of the University of Kentucky whose interest in higher education and the humanities was exceptional, this lectureship is awarded to an undergraduate whose qualities of mind and spirit have been expressed eloquently on one of more of the basic concerns of the humanities: form, value, and memory. The award is presented by the Gaines Center for the Humanities. The Edward T. Breathitt Lectureship recipient receives a special award and an honorarium of $500.
