Invest in Future Leaders!

Women Leading Kentucky believes that education is a powerful equalizer. We are deeply committed to empowering women enrolled in Kentucky colleges and universities to become leaders, and scholarships are a critical tool towards achieving this goal. Together with our generous donors, we have helped more than 200 students with over $205,000 donated to advance their education. Awards are made to women who display extraordinary leadership on campus and in their communities.
