Kentucky Scholars Program
The Gatton College of Business and Economics selects qualified students to receive Kentucky Scholars Awards. These awards are funded by a variety of private endowments. These scholarships are granted for a maximum of two semesters provided the student attends full-time and maintains at least a 3.25 graduate GPA. Recipients are chosen on the basis of the GMAT or GRE scores and undergraduate academic achievement.
All application material must be received by April 1st to be considered for the Kentucky Scholars. Files complete after April 1st will be considered if funds are available.
