I am so thankful for the opportunities that the WLK scholarship has provided me! This scholarship award has allowed me to focus on my educational and career goals without worrying so much about financial concerns. I was able to concentrate on doing well in my engineering classes instead of working a job on the side. I also had more time on my hands to join clubs and organizations on campus that have helped me to grow both personally and professionally. I will be forever grateful for this scholarship!
As a senior at Kentucky State University, majoring in business administration with a specialization in management, I received a scholarship from WLK. First I would like to thank WLK for granting me a scholarship which has allowed me to focus more on service and studies. I have utilized the WLK scholarship to pay for my books, tuition and housing fees. By all of my expenses being taking care of, I was able to become more campus and community involved which has resulted in a higher GPA of 3.6 and A and B’s.
The Women Leading Kentucky Scholarship has helped make it possible to maximize my education. As a psychology major at the University of Louisville, I am eager to learn more and see where the rest of these four years will take me. I am also in the Guaranteed Entrance to Medical School (GEMS) program and hope to pursue a career in pediatric medicine one day. I am extremely grateful to Women Leading Kentucky and the support I have received to help me fulfill my academic goals!
Receiving this scholarship relieved a great financial burden for me to continue my college studies in Business Administration with a focus in Accounting. A portion of the money went to my study abroad adventures for the spring semester. This scholarship … has given me an indescribable amount of confidence and honor that such a wonderful organization sees the work that I do as important. It has inspired me to reach for the stars even more. I cannot thank WLK enough!
The Women Leading Kentucky Scholarship that I was awarded encouraged me and validated my desire to pursue and complete my education at Berea College. This scholarship furthered my passion to continue the “learning, labor, and service” motto of Berea College while gaining the realization that I possessed the capability to promote change and stimulate confidence in others. I plan on utilizing my education in a capacity that will enrich the lives of Kentucky’s geriatric community. I am truly grateful!
