Need-Based Scholarships for Freshmen

There are two need-based scholarship opportunities for new incoming freshmen who are of residents of Kentucky:

  • L. Stanley Pigman Engineering Scholarship
  • Robert B. and Helen P. Jewell Foundation Scholarship

Only those with financial need are considered for these awards so a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be on file for the student so that we can verify that need. The FAFSA can be completed beginning October 1 for the upcoming school year, and taxes do not have to be complete to apply. Families can estimate income in order to get the FAFSA done early and update it once the taxes are complete.  The University will receive the FAFSA information approximately two weeks after completion.

Each application will be reviewed by the College of Engineering Scholarship Committee as designated by the Dean. Students are awarded on the basis of GPA, ACT or SAT scores, writing ability, leadership potential and financial need. The committee will decide if a scholarship will be awarded, and if so, the amount of the award. These awards range from $1000 to $7500. Each year there are approximately 10 new need-based awards.

L. Pigman Scholarship recipients are required to live in the Engineering LLP their Freshman and Sophomore years.

DEADLINE FOR 2019-2020 IS FEBRUARY 15, 2019

These applications must be mailed with all supporting documents. Emailed and faxed copies are not accepted.
