Scholarship Description

Since 1988, the Bluegrass Indo-American Civic Society (BIACS) has awarded over $300,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors from Commonwealth of Kentucky. The BIACS Scholarship program started with a single $1000 scholarship in 1988 and has grown to 16 (sixteen) scholarships awarded in 2018.

The BIACS scholarship consists of a trophy and a cash award ($1,500 or $1,000) presented to deserving students at the Annual BIACS Awards Banquet conducted in Lexington, KY. Some of these scholarships are merit based while the others are need based. One scholarship is also awarded every other year to a graduate student from the University of Kentucky. The BIACS scholarship is an excellent opportunity for students to secure an additional source of funding for their education and to add to their portfolio of awards.
