Bluegrass Cellular is accepting applications for the 2020 Bluegrass Cellular Scholarship Program.

Bluegrass Cellular will award $18,000 in scholarships to local college-bound high school seniors in  central Kentucky. The deadline for students to apply is Monday, April 6.

Twelve students will each be awarded a $1,500 scholarship, according to the company. Awards will be given to students based on academic achievements, school/community involvement, scholarship essay, letters of recommendation and financial need.
