Application deadline approaching for KYTC Engineering Scholarships | Events
(KFVS) - 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 five to 10 new engineering technology scholarships. A civil engineering scholarship may be worth up to $44,000.
According to KYTC, 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, you can log onto transportation.ky.gov. Under the Programs and Services tab, click Scholarship Opportunities.
The application deadline for both scholarship programs is Friday, March 1.
