To be eligible for the Kentucky Coal County College Completion Scholarship (K4C$) at the University of Pikeville a student must be a graduate of a high school in Bell, Floyd, Harlan, Johnson, Knott, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, and Pike counties (or have earned a GED while a resident of one of these counties) and have earned 60 college credit hours that will lead to a bachelor’s degree.


The scholarship will be equal to 40 percent of the difference between the tuition and the total of state and federal aid a student receives. This scholarship could be as much as $6,820 a year at the University of Pikeville (UPIKE) for a student who receives no state or federal financial aid. Additional scholarships are available from UPIKE.

Scholarships will be awarded to all students from high schools in the nine-county area that have the required 60 credit hours and enroll at the UPIKE main campus in Pikeville this fall. Twenty-three majors are available on the main campus.

In addition to the classes on the UPIKE main campus, the University, in cooperation with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), will also establish extension campuses in each of the nine target counties.

In the fall of 2012, UPIKE will offer 12 credit hours of upper division courses that will lead to a bachelor’s degree at these extension campuses. The fall semester will begin on Aug. 20, 2012.
