Scholarship for students who have overcome drug problems

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Going to college has just gotten easier for Kentucky high school seniors who have overcome prescription drug abuse.

Attorney General Jack Conway announced a new scholarship that's targeted to students who have been impacted, either as a recovering addict, as the child of an addict or in some other way.

The initiative is intended to send a clear message to impacted teens that the future can be bright.

Two $1,500 scholarships will be awarded each year.

The first ones will be announced next May.
