Midway to offer scholarship opportunities to Rogers Scholars

By Allison Cross

The Center for Rural Development is happy to announce its partnership with Midway University as a scholarship partner for the Rogers Scholars program.

Midway University, located on a 200-acre horse farm in Midway, Ky. Is a private, co-educational institution offering more than 20 career-focused majors. Midway is pleased to offer $2,000 scholarships to participants of the Rogers Scholars program who meet the admissions requirements.

Through the Rogers Scholars program, students in Southern and Eastern Kentucky have access to exclusive scholarship opportunities at 20 universities in Kentucky and Tennessee. These scholarships, which are different at each institution, range from partial to full tuition offers.

"One of the goals of the Rogers Scholars program is to the extent possible provide affordable and attainable educational opportunities to these students in hope of keeping them in the region," said Lonnie Lawson, President and CEO of The Center. "We would not be able to accomplish this without the support of post-secondary institutions throughout the Commonwealth. We are thankful to Midway University and its administration as well as our other institutions who provide scholarships."

"We are excited to partner with the Rogers Scholars organization as we believe their vision aligns with our own which includes a commitment to academic excellence and individual growth," said Ashley Dudgeon, Director for Undergraduate Admissions. "We look forward to welcoming Rogers Scholar students to our campus community."

This award is renewable for 4 years, based on academic achievement, making the total value of $8,000. Further, this scholarship may be stacked with merit and other scholarships.

The application period for the 2022 Rogers Scholars program will open in November.
