Kentucky Ag Connection - 04/08/2021

Kentucky State University was recently awarded $260,000 from the James Graham Brown Foundation for a project that will support veterans and adult work-ready training.

According to the grant proposal, the project is designed to support adult, transfer and veteran students in attaining or starting their college degree at Kentucky State.

Some of the goals of the project include improving persistence rates among first-generation students and those returning to higher education due to workforce disruptions; increasing academic advising to engage adult learners; improving the retention and graduation rate for adult learners; establishing a financial assistance support fund for veterans working towards degree completion and increasing enrollment in graduate-level professional programs.

Kentucky State University will work with USA CARES to identify students for enrollment. Approximately $125,000 of the funding will go toward student aid and funds will also go toward creating a gathering room on campus for veterans and active duty military students.

The funds will cover the costs of two advisors, capital supplies including technology, and financial assistance for students and small stipends for faculty to develop badge content.

According to its website, USA Cares is a national non-profit organization that has assisted thousands of veterans and military families facing hardships related to service.
