Money can be used to complete college degree in high-demand fields

Date Published: 12/13/2011

Unemployed and underemployed workers in the seven-county KentuckianaWorks region can now apply for KentuckianaWorks Scholarships that will fund tuition costs, books and supplies for up to two years. Nearly $800,000 in federal funding is available for training in targeted occupations in six career sectors.

“This is great news for the Louisville area and our 55,000 Degrees program, which seeks to put postsecondary education degrees within the reach of more working people,” said Mayor Greg Fischer. “We have many residents who have been unemployed for a long time and can use this opportunity to get training to start another career in a high-demand job sector. It will give people hope for a new start in 2012.”
