Kentucky Scholarships

Kentucky is a state rich with tradition. From world-class bourbon distilleries to venerable racing events like the Kentucky Derby, the state is certainly reminiscent of vintage America.

However, Kentucky still has plenty to offer the progressive individual. Progressive cities like Lexington and Louisville are known for their culture, including strong independent music and theatre scenes.

Kentucky’s educational opportunities fit into this forward-thinking mindset, as well. With more than 50 colleges and universities, Kentucky has been on the rise in postsecondary education. The state seeks to make these opportunities affordable, offering financial aid from a variety of sources.

Popular Kentucky Scholarships

Most Kentucky colleges and universities provide substantial institutional aid. The University of Kentucky offers several scholarships, some of which are reserved for in-state students. For example, the Commonwealth Scholarship awards $2,500 per year for up to four years.

The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) funds a number of scholarships to assist state residents with tuition costs. Among these awards are the Kentucky Educational Excellence and Robert C. Byrd Honors scholarships.

Applying for Kentucky Scholarships

While academic achievement is often a factor, many Kentucky scholarships consider a variety of criteria. The University of Louisville’s Woodford R. Porter Scholarship is designed for African-American students who demonstrate leadership and community service.

Some Kentucky scholarships are school-specific, but those sponsored by the KHEAA are not. You can apply for these if you’re an in-state student, whether you attend a large school like Morehead State University or a smaller institution like Brescia University.
