Scholarship Opportunity

A portion of the proceeds from the Bourbon on the Banks Festival, Inc. are used to fund scholarships to recognize those who represent the future of the distillation, fermentation or bourbon tourism industries and also demonstrate academic excellence.

The application process is open to a Franklin County resident or those that work in Franklin County, attending a college level distillation, spirits, bourbon tourism, hospitality or event management degree or certificate programs. Out-of-county students enrolled for the Kentucky State University Fermentation & Distillation Program are also eligible for scholarships. Adults of all ages and at any point in their educational journey are encouraged to apply.
