Academic Scholarships. Georgetown’s academic scholarships are earned on the basis of application for admission and vary in amounts by academic tier. Scholarships with an amount which exceeds half of the cost for tuition and fees require a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 to be automatically renewed for a student. Scholarships with an amount less than half of the cost of tuition and fees require a student to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) as outlined in the College Catalog. These scholarships are renewable for up to four years (8 semesters). Students with questions about their scholarship requirements should contact Student Financial Planning.
Other Awards. Various grants and awards are awarded to incoming students each year on the basis of need, academic ability, athletic ability, and leadership potential. Students with questions about their scholarship requirements should contact Student Financial Planning. Specialized scholarship programs may have different requirements; recipients will be notified of those criteria.
Transfer Academic Scholarship. A merit scholarship is available for transfer students who are accepted for admission. These scholarships are renewable for the duration of study for degree completion (no more than 8 semesters).
Air Force/Army ROTC Scholarships. Two-, three-, and four-year scholarships are available through the respective programs; contact the University of Kentucky Air Force ROTC Office (859-257-7115) or Army ROTC Office (859-257-2696) for an application and further information.
