Deadline for Transfer Scholarships Is Friday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 12, 2010) – Students who want to transfer to UK only have a few more days to apply for special scholarships.

The postmark deadline to apply for the Trustees Scholarships for transfer students is May 14.

There are multiple levels of financial rewards in this scholarship program, depending on how many hours students completed and GPA's they earned before transferring to UK.

Currently enrolled Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) students who will earn an associate's degree in arts or an associate's degree in science  with a 3.50 cumulative GPA after the spring 2010 term and then transfer to UK for the fall 2010 term are eligible to apply. They will compete for a limited number of two-year renewable awards, which cover the difference between UK tuition and KCTCS tuition. 

Currently enrolled KCTCS students with 48 hours after the spring 2010 semester (with at least 24 earned at KCTCS) and a cumulative GPA of 3.30 are eligible to compete for a limited number of $4,000 scholarships, payable as $2,000 per year for up to two years. 

All other transfer students who have earned a 3.30 cumulative GPA, are currently enrolled at an accredited institution, and will have earned 24 hours by the end of the spring 2010 term are eligible to compete for a limited number of $1,500 non-renewable awards.
