The 2019 GSE application is live and will close on 1/20/19! Click the button below to learn more and to access the application. There is still PLENTY of time to apply for the GSE experience!

Opening our doors to the first group of teen entrepreneurs in 2013, our mission is to bring teens from across the state into a three-week residential program, immerse them in a creative space and arm them with the tools needed to unleash their innate entrepreneurial spirits for the betterment of Kentucky. During the program, motivated teams of high school students develop a business model, design a prototype, and pitch their startup to a large audience and panel of judges. This culminating event is known to us as Demo Day. At GSE, teens learn about the opportunities, benefits and pitfalls of taking a business concept from the idea phase to pitching it to potential investors.

GSE is open to 9th, 10th, and 11th grade Kentucky teens. It is free to attend, and thanks to our collegiate partners, there are many scholarships available through the GSE program.

Dear Senior Guidance Counselor,  


We would love to introduce a wonderful opportunity at Lindsey Wilson College to you and your students – The Bonner Scholar Program!

The Bonner Program is a vehicle by which students commit and devote themselves not only to service but also to making connections between their community experiences and their academic pursuits. On behalf of the Bonner Scholar Program, we would like to invite your students to consider applying for this excellent service learning opportunity. In doing so, they are taking the first step to join a diverse group of dedicated individuals who are striving to make a difference.

The Bonner Scholar Program provides some financial support toward a college education for most of these students who demonstrate financial need and a commitment to service.

Lindsey Wilson College is one of approximately 67 colleges and universities nation-wide honored to host a Bonner Program; and, we are one of only four schools who received a $500,000 endowment in 2010 to help fund the program. Bonner Scholars will commit to an average of 10 hours of service a week- 280 for the academic year. These hours are made up mainly of time spent serving at a community site of the Scholar’s choosing, but also from activities such as workshops, meeting & training sessions, retreats, and trips that address important issues facing today’s society.


We would love for you to send us the names of your highly service-oriented students. We have enclosed a description for you and your students to review. If your students are interested in learning more about the Bonner Program from staff and current Bonner Scholars, we would encourage them to attend an Admissions Preview Day, open on Monday, February 18, and Saturday, March 23 (Talent Showcase-Bonner Interviews). Please contact me at 270-384-7469 for additional information regarding Bonner applications - the deadline to apply for the Bonner Scholar program is Friday, March 15th.   

If you have any questions or concerns or need more information, feel free to e-mail Natalie Vickous or Lainie Phelps You may visit our website at, where your students can also access a fully online application. For more information about the Bonner Foundation please visit their website at

We hope you will encourage your graduating seniors to join us as we try to make a difference in the lives of “Everybody, everyday.”

Thanks so much.

This is an excellent opportunity for Anderson Count high school students to attend a FREE (transportation is also free) youth conference sponsored by the Empower KY Youth organization.  The S.O.S. Youth Coalition works with the organization through its Y.E.S. grants.

S.O.S. YC has been invited and will be given priority for acceptance to the Conference, but all students at ACHS are invited to make application to attend due to S.O.S. YC having received Y.E.S. grants.  Rising 9th-12th graders are eligible to attend (current seniors are not eligible).

Students who attend the conference will be invited to attend a larger conference in September to work on programs that impact high school students.

More information can be found on Empower KY's website at:
