-------------------------------------

*Funding for scholarships and grants-in-aid is provided principally by the UK Center for Applied Energy Research.Numerous corporate scholarships, private endowments, and professional society scholarships provide the balance.

GUIDELINES AND POLICIES FOR KMES PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION

 

 

1.

Scholarships and grants-in-aid are non-repayable.

 

 

2.

Scholarships and grants-in-aid are awarded for a maximumof nine (9) semesters

 

 

3.

Scholarships and grant-in-aid awards are made on a semester-by-semester basis.Continued support is contingent upon academic performance.

 

 

4.

A student will not be supported for more than four (4) semesters while attending UKís community colleges (see D).

 

 

5.

No financial aid will be granted under the KMES program to any student not in good standing within the College of Engineering.

 

 

6.

Entering freshmen or transfer students are responsible for meeting all admissions requirements and for arranging his/her own student housing.(See the current University of Kentucky Bulletin for information concerning academic requirements, fees, deadlines, student services, activities, curricula, degree requirements, academic calendar, and living accommodations.)

 

 

7.

Scholarships and grants-in-aid are normally processed within three (3) weeks after the beginning of the semester for which the aid is granted.Financial aid checks may be picked up at Student Financial Aid, 202 Student Center, around Sept. 10 (for fall Semester) and Feb. 5 (for Spring Semester).

 

 

8.

Students receiving financial aid from the Department will be asked for permission to disclose personal data (address, phone number, and academic standing) to financial aid sponsors (agencies, coal companies, societies, and/or private individuals).This is often necessary for reporting requirements imposed by sponsors but can also be helpful in providing summer or co-op (cooperative education) jobs during the studentís academic career and in assisting the student in finding employment upon graduation.

 

 

9.

The KMES Scholarship Committee will evaluate the studentís academic performance each semester to make a determination of the level of support for which the student qualifies (see C).

 

 

10.

Students are strongly encouraged to obtain summer and/or off-semester (cooperative education) work in the mining industry, but such work experience is not a requirement for financial aid.

 

 

11.

All questions regarding Departmental financial aid should be addressed to:Director, Kentucky Mining Engineering Scholarship Program, 230 Mining & Mineral Resources Building, Lexington, KY 40506-0107.

 

 

12.

The total amount of financial aid which a student may receive per semester is established and monitored by the UK Financial Aid Office.

 

 

13.

Students are encouraged to become members of the UK Mining Engineering Foundation upon graduation.Current membership is $25.00 per year for recent graduates.

 

 

14.

Scholarship students must join and maintain student membership in the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME).Current cost is $15.00 per year.

 

 

15.

Scholarship students are required to interview for summer jobs (or, in the case of seniors, permanent jobs) in the mining industry.

 

 

16.

The University offers, at no charge to full time students, a program to improve organizational and study skills, consisting of a number of short courses.All Mining Engineering students are encouraged to participate in this program.We require freshman and sophomore students whose scholarship support levels drop from a higher level to the grant-in-aid level to participate in this program.

 

 

17.

Adequate progress towards completion of degree requirements in Mining Engineering is required for continued receipt of a scholarship.
