Deadline nears for nominations for KSBA First Degree College Scholarships; don’t forget required officials' signatures

Nov. 13 is the deadline for districts to submit two nominations for the fifth annual KSBA First Degree College Scholarship program. Two students – one male, one female – will be selected to receive $2,500 scholarships to help them on the road to become the first member of their immediate family (parents, guardians and siblings) to earn a postsecondary degree.

Any Kentucky board of education may place in nomination the names of up to two students per public school district, with a required minimum ACT reading score of 20. KSBA will accept receipt of the first two eligible application forms per school district (additional applications will be disqualified). The scholarships will be awarded based on a drawing conducted by the KSBA Board of Directors in December.

Eligibility must be affirmed and signed by the student’s high school guidance counselor, the school board chairman and the superintendent. The application document and more information may be accessed here.

The one-page application must be completed in its entirety and be received by KSBA no later than close of business on Friday, Nov. 13.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Mike Armstrong, Kathy Amburgey or Brad Hughes or call 800-372-2962.
