The Center for Rural Development is now accepting applications from rising high school juniors in Letcher County for the 2013 summer sessions of the Rogers Scholars youth leadership program through Jan. 31.
The program provides leadership and scholarship opportunities for high school students within The Center’s 45-county primary service area in southern and eastern Kentucky.
“The Rogers Scholars program gives high school students an experience of a lifetime to grow their leadership skills, while also securing scholarships for college,” said youth programs coordinator Delaney Stephens. “Each graduate earns access to exclusive college scholarship offers from some of the state’s top-ranked colleges and universities.”
Students apply during their sophomore year in high school and are selected through a competitive screening process to attend one of two summer leadership sessions of the Rogers Scholars program.
Applicants may download a copy of the application form by visiting the Rogers Scholars website at www.rogersscholars.com. All application forms must be completed and mailed to The Center for Rural Development, 2292 S. Highway 27, Suite 300, Somerset, Ky., 42501, by Jan. 31.
The Rogers Scholars program is provided free of charge to participants. Lodging and meals for the week are included in the program.
