License Plate Scholarship Program

PUT YOUR PRIDE ON YOUR PLATE!

Purchases of independent college license plates have generated

nearly $1 million in scholarships. Get yours soon!

Kentucky residents can show support for the state's 18 independent colleges and universities by purchasing a license plate celebrating their favorite school. $10 of the initial and renewal registration goes directly to the general scholarship fund of the particular college.

AIKCU's partnership with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has raised nearly $1 million in scholarships since the first independent college license plates hit the roads in 2002.

"Battle of the Bumpers" Competition

Each year AIKCU holds the "Battle of the Bumpers," a friendly competition among its member campuses to see which can generate the most money for student scholarships. Transylvania University held the top spot from 2008-2017, before getting edged out by Centre College in 2018. Bellarmine University took the title in 2019 and has had it locked down ever since.

How to Put Pride on Your Plate

Students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends can promote the school of their choice and help fund student scholarships at the same time. Check out the plate designs below and visit drive.ky.gov to put pride on your plate.
