The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is now accepting applications for its Civil Engineering (4 year program) and Civil Engineering Technology (2 year program) Scholarship Programs. Deadline to apply is March 1.
The Civil Engineering Scholarship Program is for students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Western KY University, University of Louisville, or University of Kentucky. Students can also take classes at other Kentucky state colleges/universities, with approved programs, before transferring to WKU, UofL, or UK. Candidates must have an ACT composite score of 24 and maintain a GPA of 2.5 while in college. College Freshmen and Sophomores currently receive $5750 a semester to apply towards tuition, books, etc. Juniors and Seniors receive $6150 a semester. This is a $450/semester increase from previous years! Students are expected to work for the Cabinet upon graduation for each year they received a stipend.
The Civil Engineering Technology Program is for students interested in pursuing an associate’s degree in civil engineering technology at Big Sandy Community & Technical College in Prestonsburg and Blue Grass Community & Technical College in Lexington. (We are currently working on developments to expand this program to western Kentucky.) Candidates must meet the entrance qualifications for the college and maintain a GPA of 2.5. Students receive $2750 a semester (this is a $250/semester increase), and are expected to work for the Cabinet upon graduation for each year they received a stipend.
