For more than 70 years, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has paved the way for Kentucky’s youth to pursue a rewarding engineering career by offering two scholarship programs to help pay for tuition while providing employment. KYTC will award up to 30 new scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year to prospective and current college students pursuing civil engineering and engineering technology degrees. Interested students must apply by the Feb. 1, 2020 deadline for scholarship consideration.
“Our scholarship program has a track record of producing future transportation leaders, like our newly appointed Deputy Secretary Mike Hancock,” said KYTC Secretary Jim Gray. “Investing in a strong educational foundation and providing hands-on work experience for Kentucky students ultimately benefits citizens who rely on a talented workforce to keep transportation moving forward.”
The Civil Engineering Scholarship is for students focusing on a four-year degree in engineering who attend the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University, or Kentucky State University. It is awarded to 10-20 new students and can be worth up to $51,000 (ranging from $6,200 to $6,600 per semester).
