We are excited to offer the Knox PN Promise Scholar Postsecondary Transition Program for the class of 2020.

Knox County high school seniors, from both Lynn Camp and Knox Central, who plan to attend one of six partner colleges this fall can get a boost when making the transition to college through Promise Scholars.

The Promise Scholars will provide a supportive community of scholars, workshops and technology devices for students graduating from Barbourville High School, Corbin High School, Lynn Camp High School, and Knox Central High School and enrolling as freshmen in Fall 2020 at one of the following schools: Somerset Community College, Southeast Community, and Technical College, Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, Union College, or University of the Cumberlands.

Once in the program, each scholar will receive a complimentary laptop, have access to workshops and college readiness e-mentoring to enhance their success on campus, be considered for paid Knox Promise Neighborhood internships on campus when available and join a community of other scholars from the area, which will offer social events planned just for scholars.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, required workshops, meetings, and applications will be provided virtually through May 29, 2020.

Interested seniors should apply for the Promise Scholars Program by May 29, 2020, at www.berea.college/2020PromiseScholar

After submitting the application, students will receive an e-mail detailing the next steps in the application process.
