FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — College students pursuing civil engineering and engineering technology degrees can apply for scholarships offered by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
The cabinet will award up to 30 new scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year to prospective and current college students, the agency said in a news release.
Students focusing on a four-year degree at the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University or Kentucky State University can apply for a scholarship that is awarded to 10 to 20 new students and can be worth up to $51,000, ranging from $6,200 to $6,600 per semester.
Students seeking an associate's degree can seek one of up to 10 scholarships for $3,000 per semester at Kentucky Community and Technical College System campuses in Lexington or Prestonsburg.
Both scholarships provide employment during the summer and job placement at the Transportation Cabinet after graduation, the release said. Recipients agree to work for the cabinet for a year for every year they received the scholarship.
The application deadline is Feb. 1. More information is available online.
