KTC scholarshipFRANKFORT, Ky. (2/15/14) — Continuing one of the Commonwealth’s most attractive postsecondary education opportunities, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will award up to 30 new scholarships for the 2014-2015 school year for students pursuing civil engineering and civil engineering technology degrees.

As many as 20 competitively awarded scholarships for the civil engineering program will be awarded for students to attend the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University or Kentucky State University.

“Civil engineers and civil-engineering technologists are critical to the mission of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and are involved in a wide variety of transportation functions,” said Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock, himself a former scholarship student and UK College of Engineering alumnus.

Scholarships include summer work, full-time job upon graduation;
Deadline for applications is March 1

“We’re excited about these scholarship opportunities for students across the state. This will provide a pipeline of highly qualified engineers in both fields and afford students a unique opportunity to advance their careers,” Secretary Hancock said.

The KYTC Engineering Scholarship Program includes the opportunity for paid summer employment and placement with KYTC in a full-time job upon graduation. Students agree to work one year for KYTC for each year of scholarship assistance.
 
Freshmen and sophomores receive $5,750 per semester, and juniors and seniors receive $6,150 per semester to complete a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering.

For complete information, go to KTC Civil Engineering Scholarship.

In addition, KYTC and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) teamed to develop an associate degree program in civil engineering technology at two campuses – Bluegrass Community and Technical College in Lexington and Big Sandy Community and Technical College in Prestonsburg.

The Cabinet will award up to 10 scholarships for participating students, who can attend either campus. Each scholarship student will receive $2,750 per semester, plus the opportunity of a summer job and full-time placement with KYTC upon graduation.

As with the civil engineering scholarship program, students who receive civil engineering technology scholarships agree to one year of work with KYTC for each year of school.

For complete information, go to KTC Civil Engineering Technology Scholarship.

The deadline for applications for both scholarship programs is March 1, 2014. Recipients will be notified in April.
