KY TRIO is pleased to once again provide awards to Kentucky TRIO participants.

 

The six KY TRIO scholarships available this year are listed above.  As noted, each scholarship has specific eligibility criteria and required documentation – just click on the links above to review each scholarship’s details.  Additional information about the scholarship application process is provided below:

All required documents are listed on the first page of each application

Example 1: A Program has one eligible KY TRIO Nominator.  The Nominator may submit applications on behalf of up to four different students (one per scholarship), assuming all unique scholarship eligibility criteria are met. 

Example 2: A program has more than one eligible KY TRIO Nominator and they both (or all) wish to nominate students for one or more scholarships.  The Program will develop a vetting or pre-screening process to determine which applicant(s) they wish to endorse, at most one participant per scholarship.  The program also decides which KY TRIO Nominator will submit the nomination for each of the applicants.  If one participant is endorsed for more than one scholarship, the participant must have more than one KY TRIO Nominator (one for each scholarship).   

Therefore, for example, if there are twenty-four SSS Programs statewide, then the maximum number of applications that should be received for any one scholarship appropriate to SSS Participants is twenty-four (each from a different SSS Program).   

The rationale behind these guidelines is to help ensure that the number of applications received will not be too large and unmanageable or too few for the scholarship program to be meaningful. Similarly, the guidelines help ensure that the greatest number of interested participants receive some form of scholarship award. 

To be considered for KY TRIO Scholarships: KY TRIO Nominators must submit the applications to KY TRIO using the links above for each specific scholarship, no later than 4:00 PM [CST] / 5:00 [PM EST] on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2024. All applicants should submit the required materials to their Nominator, who will submit the application on the applicant’s behalf.  Therefore, Nominators are encouraged to set earlier internal deadlines for application requirements to ensure Nominators can meet the KY TRIO Submission deadline.  Applications that are incomplete or missing required information WILL NOT be considered and will be disqualified. 

Please pay close attention to the criteria listed for each scholarship. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Scholarship Chair Maria David at m.david@moreheadstate.edu
