The Governor’s Scholars program is a five week residential camp for talented rising juniors, offering very generous scholarships to most in-state schools.
Catherine Graham, one of West’s five scholars, attended the program at the Morehead State campus with a historical analysis focus.
“It was interesting,” Graham said of the experience as a whole. “I was kind of surprised at how responsible it made me. For the first time I was the one in charge of staying organized and staying on track.”
Renowned as an excellent college preparatory program, Graham said that the program will definitely help to enrich her future academic experience.
“Not only are the scholarships huge at most in-state schools, it looks very good to out of state ones as well,” she said. “It really has set me up to get into any college I pick. Plus, I met a whole lot of fantastic teachers and students. I have an excellent academic network as a result.”
With applications due in the spring, now is the time to begin applying for juniors. “I would definitely recommend applying, and starting your application early! West has a lot of qualified candidates, so it will get competitive.”
