LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) — This is the first year that One Acadiana is offering a scholarship to one UL Lafayette and one student SLCC student. The scholarships are helping to achieve One Acadiana’s 55 by 25 initiative.
These scholarships will help to raise the secondary education attainment level to 55% by the year 2025, with the goal of growing our workforce throughout all of Acadiana.
“55 by 25 focuses on making sure that those returning students that are going back to school whether it be for a certificate, a two year degree, or a four year degree are ending up in a great career,” says Millicent Nugent with One Acadiana.
“It doesn’t matter what path you’re on we want to help students get back to school, finish their curriculum and be able to have a great career path for the rest of their professional lives,” says
The scholarships are available for this upcoming semester. ULL will students can start applying in July and SLCC students can start to apply in October. Learn more about the application process here.
