Given the logistical limitations and health concerns, all selected students were deemed Governor’s Scholars regardless of participation this summer; no alternates were named. The assignment committee placed all those willing to attend a revamped residential session as GSP convened at only two campuses instead of three (Centre College in Danville and Bellarmine University in Louisville), and organizers limited the number of students in each class because of social distancing rules. The final session concluded Aug. 1. 

The Governor’s Scholars Program strives to enhance Kentucky’s next generation of civic and economic leaders. Established in 1983, the program provides academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program with a full co-curricular and residential life experience.
