The Community Scholarship Program (CSP) provides scholarship funding for up to 60 credit hours toward a technical certification and/or an associate degree at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. The Rotary Club of Paducah initiated the idea for the CSP as a public-private partnership with strong participation from the Rotary, the city of Paducah, McCracken County Fiscal Court, partnering high schools, and West Kentucky Community and Technical College. The CSP scholarship will pay the balance of tuition not paid by federal, state, and other scholarship grants for which a student is eligible.
