A College Providing Leadership for Appalachia

Alice Lloyd College Seal

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.

Perhaps you will be the next friend of Alice Lloyd College!

Leading Appalachia

  1. Katie “Bob” McFarland: Brightening up the Lives Around Her

    Katie McFarland, a December 2015 graduate of Alice Lloyd College, is from Church Hill, Tennessee. While a student, she lightheartedly introduced herself as “Bob” one day—and this nickname is how she is affectionately known on campus. Bob is described by many of her peers as someone with a warm heart and a great sense of humor. Her charismatic personality has the ability to bring a smile and a comforted spirit to each person she encounters, and Bob certainly exemplifies what it means to be a servant leader.

  1. Savannah Reynolds: Never Alone at ALC

    Senior Savannah Reynolds has worked diligently to earn her Bachelors of Science in biology. While many students face adversities centralized around test prep, managing their social and academic lives, and deciding whether they want to eat ramen or ramen with spaghetti sauce on top, Savannah has faced much harder times. However, even throughout these trials Savannah has not only succeeded in earning her degree in four years, but has thrived while attending Alice Lloyd College, earning several awards and recognitions.
