A College Providing Leadership for Appalachia
Our founder, Alice Spencer Geddes Lloyd, lived and served forty-five years after she came to Kentucky, intent upon producing well-educated, purpose-driven leaders for Appalachia. We continue her mission today, knowing that the need for mountain leaders is still great, as much now as ever.
This small, private college in the hills of eastern Kentucky accepts no direct federal, state, or local funding, but provides each of its qualified Appalachian students with as generous a financial aid package as students are likely to find anywhere — no out-of-pocket costs for tuition. In exchange, our students dedicate themselves to lives of service, working a minimum of 10 hours per week in our Student Work Program, which also helps to cover education costs.
Over half of our graduates are the first in their families to receive a four-year degree. Many of them go on to graduate or professional school, receiving continued financial assistance from the College as they pursue advanced degrees. Our programs have provided teachers, doctors, lawyers, engineers, and so much more for this region — leaders who can bring about positive, lasting change.
This extraordinary opportunity is made possible by the generosity of our “friends,” those people who financially support our unique mission. We invite you to explore these pages and discover why we deserve your support: there is simply no other place like this.

At 94 years old, Colonel Fredette is a native of a small town in Massachusetts. When the Colonel found out about Alice Lloyd College, he felt that it was something he could relate to. “If it hadn’t been for the GI Bill, I wouldn’t have gotten my education. I was given an opportunity, and I want to give that to others if I can,” he says. He became invested in the College when he saw we were able to give an opportunity to those students who may not otherwise receive a college education by offering a tuition guarantee.read more
