The Office of Educational Support is excited to announce that the Kentucky State University (KSU) Upward Bound Program is being funded for the next five years.  The program was awarded $1.28 million to serve academically at-risk, first-generation and/or low-income students at the three Frankfort high schools until 2022.

The federal award slate was recently released, and KSU’s Upward Bound program was among the top programs in Kentucky to receive funding.

The Office of Educational Support was also awarded the Kentucky Council of Post-Secondary Education’s Governor’s Minority College Preparation Program grant to serve at-risk middle school students in Frankfort.  KSU’s GMSCPP program has been renamed, B.R.E.D. (Bold, Resilient, Educated, Determined) Scholars.
