Congratulations to this year's Summer Scholarship recipients!
As in past years, we had many more applicants than we had scholarships. It is always a difficult task to narrow down the field of applicants to a few recipients. We wish we had scholarships for all of our adult learners in need, but this is not the case. For those who did not receive a WKU REAL scholarship check the links below to other grant opportunities from agencies outside the university.
Community Services Block Grant

The CSBG Scholarship is open to income-eligible individuals wanting to return to school or continue their education. Scholarship benefits can be applied to fees, tuition, or textbooks at a college/university, vocational/technical school, or trade/professional program.
