Community Action of Southern Kentucky, Inc. accepts applications each spring for our annual Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Scholarship. There are $1000 scholarships available, one in each of the ten counties.
Our CSBG Scholarship helps provide training or retraining required for the local job market. The CSBG Scholarship is open to income-eligible individuals wanting to return to school or continue their education. Scholarship benefits can be applied to fees, tuition, or textbooks at a college/university, vocational/technical school, or trade/professional program.
The Barren County Community Services held a CSBG Educational Scholarship presentation on Monday, July 22 to recognize the 2019 scholarship recipients. Judge Michael Hale presented the certificates.
