Application for Student Financial Assistance

Applying for KAGE Foundation Financial Assistance

THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT THE KAGE FOUNDATION 2017 APPLICATION FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE HAS PASSED.  The application for summer 2018 will be available in early January 2018.  The deadline to apply is usually mid-March. 

Only students who are Kentucky residents and who have been accepted at a summer program for gifted students offered by a Kentucky public university will be considered by the KAGE Foundation financial assistance committee. Home-schooled students should contact the KAGE office for more information about applying to the KAGE Foundation.

As a rule, only partial financial assistance is awarded. This policy allows the students family and/or community to show commitment, and it allows limited funds to serve as many students as possible.  Award notifications are typically made in May.

Other Possible Financial Assistance Resources
Parent support groups at school or other civic groups (e.g., Rotary, Optimists) may be able to help. In addition, some universities offer financial assistance to those attending their programs. Your school’s guidance counselor may be able to offer suggestions.

We strongly urge you to contact the KAGE office to make sure that ALL components of your application have been received, especially the Educator Letter of Recommendation and test scores.

For more information about the KAGE Foundation and the Financial Assistance application, contact the KAGE office at 270.745.4301 or kage@wku.edu.
