Retention Grant*

The Retention Grant is to help current and continuing full-time undergraduate EKU students in good standing (not currently on probation) remain in school and make progress toward graduation. Retention Scholarship awards are grants based on need that will be used to help pay down outstanding balances so students can register for classes. Retention Scholarship grants are conditional upon registering for and remaining in classes for the following semester. Retention Scholarship grants cannot be used to pay down balances without registering for courses. Students who are graduating in the current term are not eligible for Retention Scholarships. Because Retention Scholarship funds are limited, not all students who apply can receive an award. 

Recipients:  Degree-seeking students that entered EKU in either the summer or fall of the current year as a first-time freshman and are returning the fall of next year who have at least a 2.0 EKU grade point average with a grade of C or better in all coursework.

*Note: All scholarship recipients enrolled prior to the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 academic year will continue to receive scholarship support at previous levels.
