Kentucky American Water is now accepting applications from area high school seniors for its 2011 Ripple Effect Scholarship Program.
Students in the company’s 10-county service area (Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Gallatin, Grant, Harrison, Jessamine, Owen, Scott and Woodford counties) are eligible to apply.
The one-time, $500-scholarships recognize students’ academic excellence and demonstrated commitment to environmental stewardship. Information about the scholarship program has been distributed to area high schools and is also located on the home page of the company’s website at www.kentuckyamwater.com
The deadline for entry is March 25.
 “As a utility that works with a precious natural resource every day, we are delighted to recognize young people who are making a difference in protecting and preserving the natural beauty of their communities, and encouraging others to do the same,” Kentucky American Water President Cheryl Norton said. “We look forward to reviewing this year’s entries.”
The company established the Ripple Effect Scholarship Program in 2002. Since that time, a total of $39,000 in scholarship funds has been awarded to 62 central Kentucky students.
