Through a gift from the Blue Coats of Louisville, the Department of Justice Administration has scholarships available for public servants of Kentuckiana such as police officers, firefighters, EMTs and correction officers. These scholarships will support people who are committed to this region and will increase the educational attainment of public servants. This effort is part of the Blue Coat’s commitment to “55,000 degrees by 2020” and ensuring that public servants get the support they deserve.
