Kentuckians attending the state fair in Louisville Aug. 14- 24 may pick up free student financial aid information at the College Info Road Show booth in the South Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center.
The College Info Road Show, a mobile classroom sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), will be on Main Street, near the Safety Town and educational exhibit areas.
At the fair, students and parents can find free college planning and financial aid materials and resources. They can also register to win a $500 college savings account. KHEAA outreach staff will be on hand to answer questions from students, parents, school counselors and other college access providers.
Visitors to KHEAA’s booth will find helpful free guides such as “The College Circuit,” “Surviving College,” “Getting In” and “Adults Returning to School.” Students and families can also learn how to request a free copy of “Getting the Facts,” a personalized report that helps students estimate how much financial aid they may receive at the schools they want to attend.
KHEAA is the state agency that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses.
