So what are the biggest challenges to building a Scholar House? Rob Ellis, Kentucky Housing Corporation, has worked to develop nine Scholar Houses across Kentucky. He knows better than most how challenging a Scholar House can be, but he also understands that the work is worth the struggle.
Scholar House is a self-sufficiency program, based on the adult student’s income, that provides housing assistance for those who are full-time students in a post-secondary educational institution. Scholar House students receive counseling, workshops, and support from neighbors and staff, while getting academic or vocational training as full-time students.
