Morehead State hosts Governor's Scholars Program

Morehead State University welcomed the Governor’s Scholars Program (GSP) to campus for the 14th year on Saturday, June 22. This year’s class consists of 338 students representing 97 Kentucky counties.

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 complete co-curricular and residential life experience. Students attending GSP must complete an application and compete with others from the state. Those selected attend the program free of charge.

MSU first welcomed GSP in 2006. Centre College and Murray State University are also hosting GSP students this summer.

Various activities are planned for the students' five-week stay on campus, including a Family Day on Saturday, July 6. GSP will conclude with a closing ceremony on Friday, July 26.
