“The Governor’s Scholars Program is an outstanding educational experience for Kentucky, and one I’m proud to say both of my sons had the opportunity to enjoy yeas ago,” Gov. Beshear said. “My congratulations go out to those young Kentuckians who had the great opportunity to share in this exciting program.”
By participating, students have the unique opportunity to exchange ideas and discover different points of view while interacting with other students and learning new disciplines.
A statewide selection committee chose the participants for the nationally recognized program from nominations submitted from each Kentucky school district. Selection criteria included academic records and test scores, teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities and essays. The program is free to those who attend.
Scholars spend five weeks on a college campus during the program, which this year was held at Bellarmine University, in Louisville, from June 17 to July 21; at Murray State University, in Murray, from June 23 to July 27; and at Centre College, in Danville, from June 24 to July 28.
