Students attending Elizabethtown Community and Technical College this spring have another opportunity to receive financial assistance for their education.
The college is offering one-time PNC Skilled Workforce Investment Scholarships to students, as will several other colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
The PNC Foundation gave KCTCS $120,000 to be distributed to communities where PNC Bank is located. ECTC is receiving $15,000 to be divided into $1,000 scholarships, according to a news release from ECTC.
Ron Harrell, ECTC chief institutional advancement officer, said the foundation wanted to establish a partnership with KCTCS.
“They wanted to do something meaningful” for those communities of which they are a part, Harrell said.
The scholarships will be provided over three years, beginning with this spring semester, he said.
Students are eligible if they are enrolled in workforce development programs that are in demand or if they’re planning to transfer to a four-year institution, according to the news release.
Students from low-income households or who are minorities will be given special consideration for the scholarships, according to a KCTCS news release.
Other schools that received money are Jefferson Community and Technical College, Bluegrass Community and Technical College, Bowling Green Technical College, Owensboro Community and Technical College, Somerset Community College’s London North Campus and Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College.
