Partners for Youth/Toyota Scholarship Program

The Partners for Youth/Toyota Scholarship program began in 1998 through a donation from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky. Youth who participate in programs funded by the Grassroots Allocations Program are eligible. Scholarships can be used for any post-secondary education program that encourages recipients to continue their education. Each year up to 10 youth receive $1,000 – $1,500 scholarships.
