The National Security Agency (NSA) offers the Stokes Educational Scholarship for high school seniors interested in pursuing their targeted career fields (Computer Science, and Computer
or Electrical Engineering). http://www.nsa.gov/careers/opportunities_4_u/students/stokes.shtml The Suder Foundation has invested in The University of Kentucky s efforts to improve
the graduation rate of first-generation students. A longstanding commitment to first-generation
students those whose parents did not complete college was one of the reasons the Suder
Foundation selected the University of Kentucky for the program. In fall 2010, University
of Kentucky welcomed its first cohort of First Scholars to campus and currently has
75 participants in the program.
