Awarded Scholarships

The Kentucky Colonels Better Life Scholarship

The Kentucky Colonels has joined with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System to address a void in the system. The target is single working parents with children under the age of 12. Too frequently, these families are caught in a downward spiral that effects generations.  Unskilled and somewhat lacking in education, the parent is unable to provide a suitable, nurturing home environment for their children that most of us would deem appropriate. The “void” in the system is a lack of educational assistance for such individuals. Thus, the creation of the Kentucky Colonels Better Life Scholarship Program. The possible benefits are seemingly endless.  By improving their education, a parent can provide a better home; the children learn from the experience and place a high value on their own education; families are empowered and removed from welfare.  And on and on and on.

The Kentucky Colonels Better Life Scholarship has awarded over $1,000,000 in college funding. The grant is administered by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. For application details contact the KCTCS institution in your area.
