Donor-Funded Honors, Awards, and Scholarships

Thanks to the generous financial support of former students, faculty, and friends of the UK English Department, we are able to provide various awards to recognize the outstanding achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students.  Recipients are selected from a pool of eligible candidates by a faculty review committee.  The awards are given annually, and the recipients are announced in the spring at the annual University of Kentucky Department of English Awards Ceremony.  These awards would not be possible without our gracious donors.  Please visit our donor page if you would like to support the UK English Department in our mission to provide the best academic experiences for our students.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Thank you for your support.
