Support the Future of Journalism
Never has good journalism been more important. The Kentucky Kernel, founded in 1908 and independent since 1971-1972, provides our students with a learning laboratory to cover UK campus and news and hone their journalistic skills. By supporting the Kentucky Kernel Fund for Excellence and its associated publications, you are supporting student stipends, travel to cover events off campus, equipment and new digital initiatives. Most importantly, you are supporting students from every major who strive for journalistic success and excellence. The Kentucky Kernel online edition (http://www.kykernel.com/) is continuously updated, and each Thursday, students produce the print newspaper that generations of Kentucky alumni remember picking up on the way to class. The Kernel also produces the award-winning KRNL Lifestyle + Fashion magazine twice a year and the annual Year in Photos.
Your gift on One Day for UK helps maintain the high-quality journalism expected from the Kentucky Kernel and its associated publications, while supporting our students and providing opportunities and equipment that will keep the Kentucky Kernel among the nation’s elite collegiate newspapers.
