New scholarship available to communications, journalism students


The Kentucky Association of Government Communicators (KAGC) will award a $500 nonrenewable scholarship to a Kentucky public high school senior who intends to study communications or journalism.

KAGC brings together government professionals whose primary jobs involve communicating with media, the public, legislatures, stakeholders and other entities. Its goal is to improve and enhance its members’ expertise, public image, morale, effectiveness and the work of federal, state and local government employing agencies. The KAGC Scholarship Program, established this spring, expands the organization’s role as a professional development organization and will help build a new generation of communications professionals in the Commonwealth.

The application deadline is Sept. 10. Visit the KAGC website to apply or email with “Question” in the subject line for more information.
