Appalachian Scholars Program

As part of the Settlement’s commitment to meet the changing needs of the region, the Appalachian Scholars’ Program began in 2016 to reach at-risk, opportunity identified students and engage them in interactive experiences designed to promote positive behaviors, increase academic performance, and acquire the skills necessary to be a productive member of a 21st-century workforce. The Appalachian Scholars’ Program is a two-phase educational initiative spearheaded by Hindman Settlement School in partnership with Berea College and Hazard Community and Technical College.

Hindman Settlement School is actively seeking partners and funders for the residential phase of this program. Contact Brent Hutchinson, Executive Director, to discuss ways to become involved with this new initiative.
