FRANKFORT, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Kentucky Governor’s Scholars Program (GSP) underwent a website redesign to help achieve its mission of providing academic and personal growth through the balance of a strong liberal arts program.
The redesigned website, gsp.ky.gov, is presented in a responsive design, allowing scholar applicants, alumni, and other community members the ability to access information and resources across multiple devices.
“The Governor’s Scholars Program is now benefitting from the excellent service provided by Kentucky.gov,” said Dr. Aristófanes Cedeño, Executive Director of the Governor’s Scholars Program. “We believe that the work done by Kentucky.gov on behalf of the Governor’s Scholars Program represents the first step in the route for the GSP to better serve digitally our constituencies from all over the Commonwealth, especially our bright youth and future leaders.”
The GSP website was redesigned by Frankfort-based Kentucky Interactive, LLC, aka Kentucky.gov, via a public-private partnership.
About the Governor’s Scholars Program
The Governor’s Scholars Program is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky who are rising seniors. The Program originated in 1983 as a result of Kentucky leaders’ concern that the state’s “best and brightest” were leaving the Commonwealth to pursue educational and career opportunities elsewhere without fully understanding the potential of their talents at home. Students who are selected attend the Program without charge. In the spirit of partnership, the Office of the Governor, the Kentucky State Legislature, and private enterprise come together to provide the financial support for the Program.
