You know that having the latest skills can help you land a new job or get a promotion, but how do you pay for it all?

The Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship will pay your tuition for short-term, career-related certificates in fields where there are good paying jobs. Many of these certificates can be completed in four months or less!

Here’s how it works.

First: Make sure you’re eligible.

  • Student must:
    • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
    • Be a Kentucky resident
    • Be a high school or GED graduate
    • Have not earned an associate's or higher degree
    • Be enrolled, or accepted for enrollment, at an eligible postsecondary institution in an approved program of study that leads to an industry recognized certificate, credential, or diploma in a high-demand workforce sector.
      • Qualifying areas for the 2017-2018 year are health care, advanced manufacturing, transportation/logistics, business services/IT, and construction


  • Not be in default on any obligation to KHEAA.
  • Have not yet earned an associate's degree or an industry-recognized certificate or credential.

Then: Find your program and Apply to KCTCS

KCTCS has more Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship eligible certificates than any other Kentucky college or university.

Next: Complete the Free Application for Student Federal Aid (FASFA).

Any tuition not covered by federal and state aid is what will be covered by the Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship.
