Governor's Scholar Program
To be eligible to apply and be selected as a Governor's Scholar, a student must:
Be in the 11th grade at the time of selection and intend to return to a Kentucky school district for the next school term. (Students skipping their senior year to enter college are not eligible);
Be a current resident of Kentucky;
Have taken the ACT, PSAT, or SAT in the 9th, 10th or 11th grades.
After completion of their own Governor’s Scholars application, students must be selected and sent by their school districts or private schools to be considered for the statewide selection process. If selected, scholars attend the program free of charge, needing only “pocket” money for personal and incidental expenses.
The program offers Scholars a chance to know and make friends with other enthusiastic, energetic students with high intellectual capacities. The give-and-take among Scholars from different backgrounds is one of the most treasured aspects of the program.
