Dear Applicant,

We thank you for your interest in submitting your application for a scholarship, however, we are requesting that you visit www.education.gov.ky/scholarships to apply online. The web link for the online portal is featured on our scholarship website.

You will be required (i) to set up a user name and password and (ii) to complete an eligibility questionnaire.

Once you are deemed eligible, you will be able to select the available scholarship and you will complete the steps and input all of your information there. There are 4 STAGES. You will not be able to move to successive stages until you have uploaded the documents needed in the current stage. Please also note that you MUST complete the paper application and upload this along with your other supporting documentation. All required forms can be found on our website noted above.

The online portal has the facility to accept uploaded documentation therefore, you will need to scan and save your documents as PDF files so that you can upload them to the online portal. You may log back into the online portal at any time prior to the deadline to finish uploading or complete the application. Please also ensure that you carefully select the correct scholarship on the online portal for which you are applying for i.e. A Level, Undergraduate, Postgraduate or Law School scholarship.

An application for a university/school start date of Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 should be submitted during the application period 1 Mar 30 Apr 2018. If you have applied to an institution and have not yet received your acceptance letter you should still submit your application on time and you should submit evidence that you have applied such as confirmation emails. If you are awaiting final grades from your current studies which come due after the application period closes on 30 April 2018, you should still submit your application on time with your most recent grades up to that time e.g. Fall 2017 term results or AS results.


Please be advised, the local application period is 1st Mar to 30th April, 2018. The application process does not open prior to or after the dates noted.
