The Eastern Kentucky University Foundation, through the generosity of its donors, offers a variety of scholarship opportunities to deserving students.  EKU Foundation scholarships are awarded through the University Scholarship Office and at college and department levels.   New and renewable awards of EKU Foundation scholarships are subject to available funds each year.     

Many EKU Foundation scholarships are based on academic credentials such as major, grade point average, grade classification or ACT scores, or other criteria such as high school, county or state.  Some scholarships are need-based and require data from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may access the FAFSA online at
