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.

Attention Juniors interested in applying for Governor’s Scholar for the Summer of 2018:  It’s time to start thinking about the application process. . .mostly the TESTS!!!!  The ACT, SAT or PSAT are required for the application process.  You only have 1 chance to take the PSAT and it’s at DHCS.  The first national test date for the ACT is Saturday, Sept. 9th.  Late Registration ends August 18th.  Don’t delay, register online today:
