Welcome to Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program

The Governor's Scholars Program strives to enhance Kentucky's next generation of civic and economic leaders. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. Students must complete an application and compete with others from across the state. Those selected attend the program free of charge.


1. As of Tuesday, March 17th, including but not limited to phone calls and social media messages related to the selection process and summer program, should be directed to our Contact page. 
2. We will keep the public informed of any daily decisions, deadlines, etc. 
3. Even though the plans for the GSP summer program are currently proceeding as normal, we will be monitoring the development of the current situation in case it lasts longer than the best-case  scenarios that are currently out in the media. 
4. For our summer personnel, you will soon be contacted by campus directors to begin planning.
