WKU Expanding Scholarship Offerings

WKU is making changes to its scholarship program to help recruit more high-achieving students. The school will offer two additional scholarships starting next fall for students with GPAs as low as 3.3 and ACT scores of 26.

"We really were missing students out there in Kentucky and beyond limiting it to some very highs ACTs and GPAs," says Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management Dr. Brian Meredith.  "We broadened the range, if you will, which will hopefully increase the opportunity for more students to compete for a scholarship."

Dr. Meredith says WKU will continue to recruit students with the highest academic credentials into the Honors College.  He adds that eligiblity requirements will remain the same for the university's most prestigious scholarships.
