Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship

Gov. Matt Bevin created the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship program to meet the increasing demand for skilled workers in five of Kentucky’s fastest growing workforce industries:

     Advanced Manufacturing

     Business and IT

     Construction Trades

     Healthcare

     Transportation and Logistics​  


​The demand for trained workers is so great in these job areas that the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship Program will give financial aid to eligible Kentuckians who have not yet earned at least an associate’s degree. In a short time, you can start a career with an industry-recognized certificate and start getting a great paycheck in a high-demand job.
