ECTC Scholarships

Students planning to attend Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) pursuing any academic or vocational field of study are eligible to apply for the ECTC Scholarships. These scholarships are open to new and returning ECTC students, including adults returning to college.

The ECTC Scholarships are available through CKCF through generous gifts by numerous donors over many years.

Dr. Linda Mayhew STEM Scholarship

The Dr. Linda Mayhew STEM Scholarship honors the legacy in STEM education created at ECTC by Mayhew. She was the first faculty member hired at the college and still teaches today. Applying students should have cumulative 3.0 GPA and plan to attend ECTC in a STEM-related field of study.

Dr. Jim Owen Memorial Scholarship

The Dr. Jim Owen Memorial Scholarship was established by Nancy Lea Owen to honor the memory of her husband, Dr. Jim Owen. Dr. Jim Owen served as the first President of Elizabethtown Community College. He had a love for learning and books, as well as community service.

Students with a cumulative 2.75 GPA who plan to attend ECTC to pursue any academic or vocational field of study are eligible to apply. Community service work is a consideration for this scholarship selection.

“Last year, CKCF awarded nearly $100,000 to over 60 regional students through Scholarship Central,” said Davette Swiney, CKCF President/CEO. “CKCF has been awarding scholarships for over 50 years. We are appreciative of the generous donors in our community who make educational opportunities available for more students through scholarships.”
