The UK Woman’s Club offers funding to students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees. We partner with the UK Office of Academic Scholarships to award our undergraduate scholarships. Currently, we strive to provide at least two full-tuition scholarships each academic year. In addition, we support graduate students with fellowships through a $200,000 endowment fund established at the University and administered in cooperation with the Graduate School. At this time, the UK Woman's Club Fellowship Endowment awards $2,000 fellowships every year. Contingent on available funds, UKWC also strives to provide Education Abroad Scholarships awarded by the International Center, through a partnership with UKWC. (Current UK Woman’s Club members are not eligible for these scholarships or fellowships.)

Since 1973, we have provided over $650,000 in student aid that has helped over 268 students obtain degrees from the University of Kentucky.
