Gateway, NKU, Thomas More College, Toyota Again Offer Womens Scholarship

Gateway Community and Technical College is partnering with Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More College and Toyota for the fourth year to fund a scholarship for Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky.

The scholarship honors a Northern Kentucky resident who exemplifies notable achievement, outstanding service to the college or the Northern Kentucky Community and personal integrity, perseverance and leadership.

A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one non-traditional female student at Gateway during the Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky awards luncheon in spring 2015. The funds will be disbursed for the fall 2015 and spring 2016 semesters.

One way for students to cut their educational cost is to apply for scholarships, said Will Bradley, Gateway coordinator of financial aid and scholarships. Unlike loans, scholarships do not have to be repaid. But the only way to receive a scholarship is to apply.

To be eligible, scholarship applicants must:
Complete the application for the Gateway/Toyota Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky Tuition Scholarship;
Be a current non traditional student with at least part-time status (six credit hours);
Have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher;
Reside in Northern Kentucky; and
Provide two letters of recommendation from non relatives.

The application and letters of recommendation are due by Dec. 10, 2014, to the Gateway Financial Aid Office at the Urban Metro Campus, 525 Scott Blvd., Covington, Ky., 41011.
Bradley noted that the application for the Gateway/Toyota Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky scholarship differs from Gateways usual scholarship application.

Bradley said Gateways general scholarship application will be available in mid-November. For more information about scholarships, contact Bradley at 859-442-4186 or William.bradley@kctcs.edu.
