Gateway, Northern Kentucky University and Thomas More College have partnered with Toyota Motor Engineering amp; Manufacturing North America for the fourth year to fund an OWNK scholarship. The scholarship honors a Northern Kentucky resident who exemplifies notable achievement, outstanding service to the college or the Northern Kentucky community, and the qualities of personal integrity, perseverance and leadership.

We are pleased to participate in the OWNK scholarship program, which is celebrating 30 years of recognizing women for being trailblazers, groundbreakers, and exemplary leaders at home, in the workplace, or the community, said Will Bradley, Gateway coordinator of financial aid and scholarships. This scholarship was formed to represent the great diversity and extraordinary accomplishments of today's women.

Bradley said a $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one non-traditional female Gateway student, who will be recognized at the OWNK awards luncheon in spring 2014. Scholarship funds will be disbursed for the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters.

Sara M. Foster received the 2013 Gateway OWNK scholarship. It has helped me move forward with my pursuit of education and given me faith that I can make a difference in peoples lives, Foster said.
