The 2014 BAW offers two $500 non-renewable scholarships to women who have demonstrated strong leadership skills and a commitment to volunteer service. One will be awarded to a traditional student (attending college immediately after high school or current GED graduate) and one for a non-traditional student. The Legacy of Leadership Scholarship is available to female residents in the Bluegrass Area Development District counties attending college as a full-time student or a part-time student carrying nine credit hours.
Bluegrass Alliance for Women (BAW) Impact Awards are granted annually to one woman from each of the seventeen counties in the Bluegrass Area Development District (BGADD) who has made a strong commitment to improving the lives of women and girls within the BGADD. These awards bring recognition to women who are empowering women and girls in their communities that would otherwise go unnoticed through other channels.
The BGADD counties include: Anderson, Boyle, Bourbon, Clark, Estill, Fayette, Franklin, Garrard, Harrison, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mercer, Nicholas, Powell, Scott and Woodford.
At the 8th Annual 2014 Legacy Award Luncheon, all women nominated will be recognized. BAW Impact Awards will be presented to one outstanding nominee from each county. Following recognition, the 2014 Legacy Award will be presented to one of the county Impact Award recipients. The Legacy Award, presented annually, honors and recognizes one woman as an exemplary role model committed to empowering women and girls in the BGADD.
