The Donovan Scholarship in Gerontology was established on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Donovan Scholars, UK lifelong learning program. Each year, deserving graduate and undergraduate scholars are identified to receive scholarships to enable them to continue their studies and to pursue a career in the area of aging. Scholarships have been awarded annually since 1991.
The amount of the scholarships depends upon the interest earned each year by the Donovan Scholarship endowment. In recent years $2000 per year has been available for each of three scholarship recipients.
To apply for the Gerontology Scholarship, you must be a full-time student (currently enrolled and taking at least 12 undergraduate credit hours or 9 graduate or professional credit hours) during the semester for which you would qualify to receive the scholarship. The application must contain the following documents:
