Morehead State welcomes Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program

Governor's Scholars Program SealMorehead State University will continue serving as a host campus for the Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program in 2021.    

MSU first welcomed GSP in 2006 and this will be the ninth year the University has hosted GSP. Of the three universities that serve GSP students (others include Bellarmine University and Centre College), MSU is the only public university to host the program.    

The 345 scholars arrive on campus Saturday, June 26, with numerous activities planned throughout their five-week stay. The students will be served by 40 faculty and staff. GSP will conclude with a closing ceremony on Friday, July 30.    

Established in 1983, the Governor's Scholars Program is a residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students who have completed their junior year in high school. GSP provides academic and personal growth in a challenging, nontraditional environment that balances a solid liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. Students who attend GSP must complete an application and compete with others from across the state. Those selected attend the program free of charge.
