The Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) is a collegiate athletic conference with membership in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Although it was historically a Kentucky-only conference, it has now expanded to include members in Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and at various times in the past has also had members in Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
The KIAC recognizes hundreds of athletes and staff each year with awards. Awards include weekly players of the week, all conference teams, all conference coaches, all scholar athletes, female athlete of the year, and male athlete of the year. The awards give each KIAC participant a chance to be recognized for on and off the field achievement. The conference embraces the NAIA's Champions of Character, becoming the first conference to offer funding to member schools to pursue projects in their hometown communities. A separate section on the KIAC website profiles the efforts of the conference towards the core values of Champions of Character.
