Lincoln Scholars Program
600 West Walnut Street
Danville, KY 40422
Centre is pleased to announce this new initiative as part of its ongoing mission to prepare students for lives of learning, leadership, and service.
The Scholarship and Enrichment Program
Lincoln Scholars receive “full-ride plus” scholarships, renewable for four years.
In the summer before their first year at Centre, Lincoln Scholars will participate in a ten-day endeavor that includes an introspective short course on leadership, a colloquium on Lincoln, and a three-night, four-day Outward Bound experience in North Carolina.
Each Lincoln Scholar will engage with the program director to chart an intentional, self-initiated course of study, research, service, and co-curricular experiences over four years. Summers after the first year at Centre will be devised in conjunction with the program director.
The scholarship and enrichment program includes:
• Four-year, “full-ride plus” scholarship
• Three summers of enrichment experiences that further develop students’ tenacity, grit and understanding of humankind’s challenges
• Opportunities to pursue career-building and leadership-enhancing experiences
• Individual mentoring
Competitive applicants should demonstrate:
• Standardized test scores at or near the top 10 percent of scores nationally
• A high school GPA that reflects achievement and success. IB program participants are welcome.
• Selflessness, integrity, and the courage to be bold in pursuit of the greater good
• Intellectual curiosity, a compelling personal mission, and an intense desire to achieve goals
• Marked participation and leadership in extracurricular, service, or community activities
