HBCU of the Month
Congratulations to Kentucky State University, The HBCU Foundation’s July HBCU of the Month! We are asking all KSU alumni, family, friends and fans to pledge a gift and lend support by spreading the word. Donations will go in support of scholarships to students attending Kentucky State University.
The HBCU Foundation™ uses donor support to extend financial assistance to deserving students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Our HBCU of the Month campaign is an on-going effort to offer a measure of recognition to all 101 HBCU institutions and generate critical financial support for students.
ABOUT KENTUCKY STATE UNIVERSITY
Kentucky State University (KSU) was chartered in May 1886 as a land grant institution. Located in Frankfort, Kentucky – the state capital – KSU offers associate (two-year) degrees in three disciplines, baccalaureate (four-year) degrees in 24 disciplines, and master’s degrees in five disciplines.
The university’s 882-acre campus includes a 204-acre agricultural research farm and a 306-acre environmental education center. KSU has more than 135 full-time instructional faculty members and about 2,200 students. The University’s student-faculty ratio is the lowest among public institutions of higher learning in Kentucky. During a typical academic year, the University’s student and faculty composition reflects one of the most diverse populations in the Commonwealth.
