ACDC’s annual scholarship program was created to help outstanding Atchison County high school graduates fund post-secondary education and training programs, especially when that education helps enable students to live, work and create a life in Atchison County. Recognizing the importance of both career/technical training (welding certification, CNA training, lineman school, etc.) and traditional undergraduate education, ACDC’s scholarship program offers a $1,000 award in each of the following categories, for a total of two scholarships per school:

• Tech school training program/community college degree

• 4-year undergraduate degree

Applications can be obtained by visiting your local high school counselor’s office or by contacting Atchison County Development Corporation (; 660-744-6562) and are due to ACDC by Thursday, February 28, 2019.
