“These students have found programs here at EKU that meet their needs academically, therefore Eastern is doing all it can to help them achieve their dreams financially through our merit-based scholarship program,” said Brett Morris, interim director of admissions at the university. “The process is much easier now because students are granted these scholarships automatically if they qualify. There’s no need for a separate application.”
The Excellence Award, Founders Award, Regents Scholarship, Presidential Scholarship and Merit Scholarship are for incoming high school freshmen. The Colonel, Colonel Plus, Maroon and Maroon Plus scholarships are for incoming transfer students.
