LOUISVILLE - Sullivan University offers certificates and diplomas in several high-demand programs that are part of the state's recently-announced relaunch of a scholarship program designed to boost education and employability among Kentucky adults.
"Sullivan University offers several short term programs that can provide people with the necessary skills to quickly fill jobs that are in-demand now," said Sullivan University President Dr. Jay Marr. "Most of these programs can be completed in nine to 12 months.”
"It's a wonderful opportunity for students to learn new skills that can lead to a great career, and it helps the Commonwealth by providing a skilled labor base it so desperately needs to fill those positions," Dr. Marr said.
The Sullivan programs eligible for the scholarship are:
“Building a better Kentucky means supporting educational opportunities for every Kentucky family,” Gov. Andy Beshear said in a recent statement announcing the scholarship. “During this ongoing pandemic when many Kentuckians are seeking new opportunities this scholarship can help students get free or reduced tuition to take industry-specific, short-term courses that prepare them to get to work in weeks, or they can even choose to earn an associate degree."
The Work Ready campaign is a partnership between KCTCS, Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, Kentucky Lottery, Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, The Graduate Network, Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Kentucky Association of Manufacturers, Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence and AARP Kentucky. It is also supported and partially funded by the Lumina Foundation.
