Transfer Student Scholarship

The Dean’s Scholarships for Transfer Students

The Dean’s Scholarships for Transfer Students are used to support outstanding transfer students. The University of Kentucky College of Engineering awards scholarships to incoming engineering students transferring from another college, community college or university. Students from Kentucky Community and Technical College System institutions are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are available for students entering UK during both the fall and the spring semesters.

Candidates for these scholarships must submit:

  • Transcript(s) from each school attended showing credits earned and classes taken through the current semester and cumulative grade point average. A minimum of 24 hours must be completed by the end of the current semester
  • Include one letter of recommendation from a math and/or science instructor at your current school
  • A double-spaced, 250-word essay which includes your educational and career goals, specific financial needs and any special circumstances
  • Applicants must have taken calculus and physics receiving at least a B letter grade in each. In addition, candidates must have a 3.0 or above GPA at their current institution since that is the GPA requirement in order to maintain the scholarship in the College of Engineering

Each applicant must satisfy all University of Kentucky requirements for entrance into a College of Engineering degree program before being considered for these scholarships. Download the Fall 2018 Transfer Application here.

Fall deadline: June 15
Spring deadline: November 15
