KEDC is excited to once again extend an opportunity for graduating seniors of the Knox County Public Schools to apply for their annual scholarship. KEDC will award at least one $2,500 scholarship for college (2 or 4 year), technical or vocational bound students that meet the criteria set forth in the attached guidelines to a student in a member district. Additional scholarships may be awarded; contingent on the amount of money raised during our June golf scramble. Information and dates for this will be forthcoming; we look forward to seeing you and your team there! It is an honor to be able to provide this opportunity for our deserving seniors!
The deadline to apply is April 1, 2019 and the recipient will be notified by May 1, 2019. An application, rubric and criteria are attached and can also be found on the KEDC website:www.kedc.org (Instruction tab, then Instruction & Leadership tab, then KEDC Annual Scholarship tab). Essays will be blind scored by a committee made up of KEDC employees and KEDC board members.
The Knox County Public Schools are a member district of KEDC, the Kentucky Education Development Corporation. KEDC provides Knox County with instructional grant opportunities, technology infrastructure installations, and purchasing discounts as part of the Kentucky Purchasing Co-Op.
