We’re all about MORE!

Thrive Scholars have access to more resources, opportunities, and success in college!

The nationally award-winning Thrive Scholars Program creates a community of engaged students who are able to transition more easily into their college experience, while maintaining the HOPE scholarship and staying on track to graduate.

Who are Thrive Scholars? All high-achieving high school seniors who meet the eligibility requirements and the application deadline will be considered. Thrive Scholars currently represent 2% of the KSU student body. A limited number of new Thrivers are accepted each year. It’s your time to Thrive at KSU!

The Mission

  • Thrive students maintain the HOPE scholarship at substantially higher rates than demographically matched groups.

  • Thrive students receive many benefits, resources and support that help them keep hope throughout their college journey. This includes personalized graduation coaching, access to workshops and conferences, and attendance at the first Summer Orientation with priority registration for their first-semester classes.

  • Thrive students have the opportunity to get involved early on, with leadership skill development and practice on campus and in the community. Thrive students make a difference!
