The University of Kentucky offers renewable academic, competitive and selective scholarship opportunities for incoming first-time freshmen. For the Bluegrass Spirit Awards, requirements will vary, but applicants should have at least a 3.0 GPA, and if they took the ACT/SAT, a score of at least 25 or 1200. Applicants must be a nonresident of Kentucky. Other than the aforementioned criteria, there are no other restrictions.
Students who meet the traditional or test optional minimum criteria, apply for admission and submit all supporting documents, including high school transcript, as soon as possible, but by no later than December 1st, will be considered for academic scholarships. Once admitted, eligible students are automatically considered for academic scholarships. No additional application is required.
