KHEAA offers financial aid to students

Kentuckians seeking help paying for college or technical education can take advantage of student assistance programs administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

These programs include:

College Access Program Grant. CAP scholarships help students in need pay for tuition at public and private colleges in Kentucky in two and four years.

Kentucky Tuition Scholarship. Students enrolled full-time in associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs at private colleges in the state may be eligible for a KTG award.

Dual credit scholarship. This scholarship is available to high school and home school students taking dual credit courses at a participating college or university.

Work Ready Kentucky Scholarship. WRKS helps Kentuckians obtain a certificate, diploma or associate degree in labor-intensive areas of high demand. High school students can use it for double credit courses in technical areas.
