EKU Educational Partnership

Program Details

KLC has established an exclusive partnership with Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) and the Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo) to provide a 30% tuition scholarship for all programs and a 20% discount on workforce development courses. Learn more about programs here.

Eligible city employees and officials can receive 30% percent discounted tuition, free textbooks, and locked-in tuition rates for two years.
The EKU Advantage partnership will provide thousands of KLC members with greater accessibility to the various educational programs at EKU. Family members are not eligible for the discount, and proper documentation is required. This is a scholarship, and as such, it is not stackable (cannot be combined) with any other EKU scholarships.
