Kentuckians seeking help to pay for college or technical training can take advantage of student aid programs administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). Those programs include the:
• Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship. KEES lets high school students earn money by getting good grades in school and doing well on the ACT or SAT.
• College Access Program Grant. CAP awards help financially needy students pay for classes at Kentucky’s public and private two- and four-year colleges.
• Kentucky Tuition Grant. Students enrolled full time in associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs at the state’s private colleges may be eligible for a KTG award.
• Dual Credit Scholarship. This scholarship is available to Kentucky high school and home school students taking dual credit classes at a participating Kentucky college or university.
• Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship. The WRKS helps Kentuckians who have not yet earned an associate’s degree afford an industry recognized certificate or diploma.
