Juniors: Interested in applying for GSP?

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

The Governor's Scholars Program (GSP) is a stimulating, five-week, residential summer program for outstanding Kentucky students completing their junior year in high school. Established in 1983, the popular program provides academic and personal growth in a challenging, non-traditional environment that balances a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience. To be eligible to apply and be selected as a Governor’s Scholar, a student must: • Be in the 11th grade at the time of selection and intend to return to a Kentucky school district for the next school term (Students skipping their senior year to enter college are not eligible.); • Be a current resident of Kentucky; • Have taken the ACT, PSAT, or SAT in the 9th, 10th, or 11th grades. After completion of their own Governor’s Scholars application, students must be selected and sent by their school districts or private schools to be considered for the statewide selection process. If selected, scholars attend the program free of charge, needing only “pocket” money for personal and incidental expenses. If you plan on applying for GSP, please email Mrs. Childers at:
