The 2-year pilot for spouses and dependents in the Corporate Educational Partnerships program begins in the Spring semester of January 2024 and runs for two years. The EKU Advantage is a scholarship for financial aid purposes and cannot be combined with other EKU scholarships or Merit awards. This does not include Pell grants and loans.
Dependents are high school graduates and are covered up to the age of 26 – if they are 26 at the time of enrollment and stay continually enrolled, they will not be disenrolled after 26-years-old, but they will stop receiving the benefit once they graduate with their first degree. If your dependent is currently a student at EKU and receiving a scholarship or merit aid, they are not eligible to receive the discounted tuition under the EKU Advantage Program and our Corporate Educational Partnership with Baptist Health.
An HR Contact from within Baptist Health will check eligibility and send the Confirmation of Employment (COE) Letters out to be uploaded to the EKU Corporate Partner Portal. The eligible spouse or dependent MUST upload this specific document and upload it to the portal in order to receive the EKU Advantage scholarship. The HR contact can be found below.
Newly admitted students will need to visit the following link at Next Steps to complete the application and the new student checklists. After completing the checklist, the next step in the process is to reach out to the HR Contact to receive the COE Letter and upload to the EKU Corporate Partnership Portal. For students already enrolled within EKU, they need to reach out to the HR Contact to receive the COE Letter and upload to the EKU Corporate Partner Portal .
