College Scholars Program
The College Scholars program is an extension of our Educational Opportunities program that supports capable and motivated youth and young adults in their pursuit of a higher education.
During the 2018-2019 academic year, 30-35 motivated Cabbage Patch Scholars will receive $257,000* in scholarships that help bridge the financial gap often created after student loans and grants have been applied toward college tuition, fees and expenses. Personal attention and support are provided to each Cabbage Patch College Scholar throughout their college career, greatly increasing their likelihood of graduation.
*This includes $80,000 in Cabbage Patch funding; $173,000 through a partnership with the University of Kentucky (a minimum of $10,000 per student in annually renewable scholarships); and $4,000 through the Downtown Optimist Club.
