Tony Rose, DJ for the WDNS Tony Rose Morning Show, and the coordinators of the annual Stuff The Bus donation drive, are pleased to extend an open invitation to all High School Seniors in the Southern Kentucky Area, the opportunity to apply for the Stuff The Bus Scholarship Fund. Through the generous facilitation of the Western Kentucky University College Heights Foundation, applications are being accepted now through the deadline of April 1, 2016.
Requirements: All high school seniors with appropriate validation of community service. Seniors who are the children and/or grandchildren of current or retired School Bus Drivers in the Southern Kentucky Counties of: Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Grayson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, or Warren (including any city, county, private, or home schools within these counties). Students must have held a part time job during their high school tenure.
Specific details and qualifications for scholarship application can be found on the WKU Stuff The Bus Scholarship Fund page at http://www.wku.edu/chf/stuffthebus/stb-sf-guidelines.php Students applying for the award may indicate on their application that they are applying for the Stuff the Bus Scholarship.
"I've always considered Edmonson County a second home to me," Rose said. "Although the scholarship is open to a number of county and city school systems, EC and their local Family Resource and Youth Service Centers are huge supporters of Stuff The Bus. We also appreciate our great working relationship with our friends at EdmonsonVoice.com."
Recipients will be selected by the Stuff the Bus Scholarship Committee. At any point, the Stuff the Bus Scholarship Committee can hand over selection to the University Scholarship Committee for future years by a majority vote. Award notification will be sent in the form of a letter from the University Scholarship Committee, with the letter to contain appropriate recognition of the Stuff the Bus Scholarship Fund.
Two scholarships will be initially awarded in the amount of $1,000 each.
