LG&E and KU Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist LG&E and KU Energy LLC (and its subsidiaries) employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited four-year institution of the student’s choice. The program is not available for the children of PPL employees, though any previously-awarded scholarships to children of LG&E-KU employees who have or will become PPL employees will be honored.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America®. Scholarship America is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon the student maintaining a 3.0 cumulative grade point average in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by LG&E and KU Foundation.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
