WKU Learn and Earn

As of March 2019, the Learn and Earn Scholarship Program has transitioned from WKU to the South Central Workforce Development Board.  To learn more about this exciting new program, KY HirED, click here.


  Currently, Kentucky communities are all facing many of the same problems:


  • testMany students desire to go to college/stay in college but are  unable to do so because of finances.  In addition, most students graduate with significant student loan debt.


  • Students are entering the workplace without a strong set of workforce/soft skills--skills that can be nurtured while they're in college and further strengthened through real-world working experience.


  • Businesses struggle to find quality, dependable employees for entry level positions.  As a result, most are faced with tremendous turnover expenses.


The WKU Learn and Earn Scholarship Program addresses EACH of these issues at the same time, to the benefit of students, businesses and communities.
