The Governor's Scholars Program began in 1983, when approximately 350 of Kentucky's brightest rising high school seniors spent five weeks at Centre. The program has expanded to three campuses, and more than 1,000 students.
The program at Centre runs this year from June 25 to July 29, and includes 388 Scholars. Now in its 24th year (its 23rd year at Centre), the Governor's Scholars Program mixes a busy academic schedule in the sciences, mathematics and humanities with a full enrichment and residential-life experience.
This year's program on Centre's campus includes 21 faculty members, who are drawn competitively from colleges, universities and high schools in Kentucky and across the nation. The eight office staff members and 21 resident assistants, many of them former Governor's Scholars, are students at a variety of colleges and universities, including Centre, the University of Chicago, Davidson and Vanderbilt, among others.
