Robinson Scholars

Supporting Robinson Scholars

Our program devotes significant human and financial resources to help eastern Kentucky’s first generation students obtain college degrees and develop into productive citizens. We would not be successful without the continued support of the many individuals and organizations who understand that our youth are the foundation for success. Eastern Kentucky is one of our nation’s poorest regions, lagging in economic development, health outcomes, and educational attainment. However, Robinson Scholars is shattering this image of our region, with innovative programming that shines a light of hope into the mountains, to borrow from words of Cora Wilson Stewart who was a leading regional educator in the early 20th Century.

Your contribution supports scholarships and effective programming that lead to the success of our young people. Your gift will help ensure that our legacy is lasting and that we are teaching people to fish, as the old adage states.
