The Retention Scholarship is to help current and continuing full-time undergraduate EKU students in good standing (not currently on probation) remain in school and make progress toward graduation. Retention Scholarship awards are grants based on need that will be used to help pay down outstanding balances so students can register for classes. Retention Scholarship grants are conditional upon registering for and remaining in classes for the following semester. Retention Scholarship grants cannot be used to pay down balances without registering for courses. Students who are graduating in the current term are not eligible for Retention Scholarships. Because Retention Scholarship funds are limited, not all students who apply can receive an award.
