1890 Scholarships available at Kentucky State University
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Kentucky State University has extended the application deadline for its 1890 Scholarship Program to July 3.
The purpose of the 1890 Scholarships Program is to provide scholarships to support recruiting, engaging, retaining, mentoring, and training of undergraduate students resulting in baccalaureate degrees in food and agricultural sciences and related fields.
Beginning fall 2020, KSU will award these scholarships to individuals who:
Have been accepted for admission to KSU; will enroll at KSU no later than one year after the date of acceptance; and intends to pursue a career in the food and agricultural sciences, including a career in agribusiness, energy and renewable fuels, or financial management.
Scholarships are awarded annually and must be used at Kentucky State University located in Frankfort. Each award is renewable each year for up to a four-year term. Scholarships range from full tuition, and room and board to partial scholarships. The scholarship renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance and academic progress toward the bachelor’s degree.
Each scholarship recipient must have a faculty mentor in his or her agricultural interest area and the student will be required to visit with this professor at the beginning of each semester to discuss the student’s progress in the program.
Also, the student will be required to submit a progress form and continued agricultural career commitment form to the selection committee as proof of the meeting. The committee will review all recipients at the end of each semester to monitor progress in completing their education, maintaining a 2.8 GPA, and participation in student groups for leadership development.
