The 2014 Kentucky State Police Trooper Island Scholarship Program for high school seniors is accepting applications until April 21.

Created in 2008, the program strives to expand the mission of Trooper Island, a boys and girls camp located on Dale Hollow Lake in southeastern Kentucky. The hope is to provide scholastic financial support for young people attending a college or technical/vocational school. Although preference will be given to those students who attended Trooper Island Camp, it is open to all who apply.

A minimum of four $1,000 scholarships, available for the fall semester of this year, are planned to be awarded.

The deadline for scholarship application submissions has been extended to April 21.

For more information, please contact Lori Hunsaker with the Kentucky State Police or Lucille Marshall at (502) 782-1793.
