University of Kentucky Scholarship Update

As we get closer to the early action deadline of December 1st, we wanted to share with you some updates and tips for your students to follow.  Please remind your students to check their spam or junk folder for important communication as often notifications of admission and scholarship can end up in those folders.  In addition, we know many of your students are diligently working on their essays and we wanted to be sure that you are aware of the information we have been sharing with students.  Most of this guidance is similar to that shared on the Lewis Honors College website, since the essay questions were made available back in August:

If you are still working on your essays, here are some tips we thought you might find helpful:

  1. For both essays, there isn’t one right answer. Nor should you think about the essay as a test where you address every issue or question raised. That’s not what we’re looking for in reviewing the essays.
  2. Both essays are designed to get a sense for how you write and communicate. So, think of the various topics and questions in each essay as ways to get you thinking – not as specific issues to address point by point.
  • Moreover, we aren’t looking for you to do research to address the issues and questions raised. Again, this is about seeing how you think, how you communicate and how you express your thoughts around complicated ideas – whether that’s a matter of economics, history or ethics.
  • Think of it much like a conversation you would have with friends or your teacher.
  • Tell us, in other words, what you think.

Should you have students with any questions about the essays, feel free to share the information above, or let me know and I’d be happy to help them.

We have one other reminder.  The last couple years, we have been able to send out some early estimated aid packages and we are able to do that again this year.  If your students complete and submit both their application for admission (and all supporting documents) and FASFA by November 15th they will receive a decision and an estimated award package by December 15th.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you out.
