Program Overview

Brown Fellows is a prestigious scholarship program designed to support students’ unique personal, academic, and career goals while producing outstanding ambassadors for the state of Kentucky.

The program provides a diverse group of students the opportunity to build leadership skills through academic enrichment, expanded opportunity, and personal accountability. It is open to residents and non-residents of Kentucky with a 26 ACT or 1230 SAT and 3.5 GPA. Ten Fellows are selected each year. Recipients will have diverse academic interests; demonstrate that they are well-rounded; and show evidence of leadership potential. The scholarship award will include full tuition, room, board, and an allowance for books. In addition, each fellow applies for funding from the Brown Foundation to support their individual enrichment plan, which consists of specialized study, research, internships, service, or other opportunities that advance the student toward his or her goals. Individual enrichment funding can be up to $6,000 per project.
