College grants available for adult students

Adult Kentuckians who want to take college classes may be eligible for a Go Higher Grant administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

Go Higher Grants are available to adults who are 24 years or older and enrolled in fewer than six credit hours at a participating Kentucky college or university. Applicants must show financial need. The maximum award amount is $1,000 and covers tuition plus a book allowance of $50 per credit hour.

To be considered for a grant, students must complete a Go Higher Grant application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Grant applications are available at www.kheaa.com. The FAFSA may be submitted online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. There is no deadline for applying, but students are encouraged to apply as quickly as possible because funding is limited.
