Just as education is critical to achieve community and economic development, scholarships are essential to further education. Scholarships expand opportunities for people for educational advancement. Scholarships give people a chance to explore possibilities for their life. This educational access facilitates life dreams and career options that lead to financial independence.

We work with donors who desire to make these opportunities available to people. We work with students who can benefit from both the financial investment and personal empowerment from a scholarship award. We work with colleges and universities to streamline the process and ensure best use of the funds for both the donor and student.

Central Kentucky Community Foundation has been awarding scholarships for 40 years to local students through the generosity of people who want to make educational opportunities available to more people. We are the largest awarder of scholarship funds in the region. In 2015, CKCF has $100,000 in scholarships available to local students.
