|Ky. Governor's Scholars applications now available|
Pendleton County High School announces the school-wide competition for the 2014 Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program (GSP).
The Governor’s Scholars Program is a stimulating, five-week, residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students completing their junior year in high school. The host colleges for the Summer of 2014 will be Bellarmine University in Louisville, Morehead State University, and Murray State University.
Established in 1983, the popular program provides academic and personal growth in a challenging, non-traditional experience that balances a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life.
While not a scholarship program, many universities and colleges across the state recognize the significance of participation in this program and provide special scholarship opportunities to students who have completed the Governor’s Scholars Program.
The Governor’s Scholar Program competition is open to all juniors. It is highly competitive and involves a lengthy application process. The students are selected based on multiple criteria that include academic record, ACT or PSAT test scores, teacher recommendation, community leader recommendation, personal essay, and student resume that consists of activities as well as demonstrated leadership and service.
Pendleton County High School is eligible to nominate six juniors based on grade 11 enrollment standards set by GSP. These nominees will compete with over 1,900 students from across the state for approximately 1,050 spots on one of the three campuses.
School specific information for Pendleton County High School juniors is now available in the Guidance Office. For general program information, go to www.gsp.ky.gov .
To be considered for school nomination, applicants must return completed applications to the Pendleton County High School guidance office on or before 4 p.m. Tuesday, October 29, 2013.
