The Big Sandy Area and Community Action Program has selected its 2023 Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) scholarship recipients.

The CSBG scholarship is an annual scholarship that’s given to qualifying students in BSACAP’s five service areas: Johnson, Martin, Magoffin, Floyd, and Pike. Ten scholarships worth $500 are awarded to the students to assist them in their pursuit of higher education. The amount may be greater than intended if there are less than ten recipients, but no award should be less than $500.

Our 2023 recipients also wrote essays in which they described their career goals and how this scholarship would help them achieve them.

Without further ado, BSACAP would like to congratulate its 2023 CSBG scholarship recipients:




Scholarship funding is made possible by Community Services Block Grant with funds made available by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
