Kentuckians who are interested in earning a certificate or an associate degree in one of the top five in-demand fields in the Commonwealth could go to college tuition-free at the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).
Thanks to the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship Program, students who choose programs in advanced manufacturing, health care, transportation/logistics, business and IT and construction/trades can apply for the scholarship that covers up to 60 credit hours.
The scholarship is open to people of all ages who have not earned an associate degree. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and a Kentucky resident.
Additionally, any Kentuckian that has not earned a high school diploma can take advantage of GED Plus. This program, in conjunction with Skills U, allows students to work toward a GED and a college credential simultaneously. The Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship covers tuition for the credential if it is in one of the five in-demand fields.
