Requirements for the Provost Awards will vary, but applicants should have at least a 3.3 GPA, and if they took the ACT/SAT, a score of at least 26 or 1230. Applicants must be a resident of Kentucky. The University of Kentucky is committed to making scholarship opportunities available to students who qualify, whether they apply with or without test scores. The University of Kentucky is a national leader in using extensive data assessment beyond test scores to evaluate students for scholarship awarding, including heavily weighing a student’s unweighted high school GPA.
The University of Kentucky offers renewable academic, competitive and selective scholarship opportunities for incoming first-time freshmen. Completed admission application and all supporting documents, including high school transcript, must be received as soon as possible, but by no later than December 1st. Once admitted, eligible students are automatically considered for academic scholarships. Combined test scores (super-score) are not considered. For all scholarships listed, students may receive only one award.
