Transportation Cabinet Scholarships Available
By WestKyStar Staff
FRANKFORT, KY - The application deadlines for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Engineering Scholarship Programs are quickly approaching
Each year, the Cabinet awards 10 to 20 new civil engineering scholarships and 5 to 10 new engineering technology scholarships. A civil engineering scholarship may be worth up to $44,000. Plus, there's job placement after graduation and the opportunity for a potentially rewarding career. In fact, many current and former Cabinet leaders were scholarship recipients -- including Transportation Cabinet Secretary Mike Hancock and State Highway Engineer Steve Waddle.
The Engineering Technology Scholarship Program is in its fifth year and prepares students for careers with the Transportation Cabinet after graduation. Each engineering technology scholarship student receives $2,500 per semester to complete an Associate's Degree in Civil Engineering Technology. For more information, log onto transportation.ky.gov. Under the Programs & Services tab, click Scholarship Opportunities.
The application deadline for both scholarship programs is Friday, March 1.
