Educational Opportunities & Scholarships

Kentucky Scholarships

Many Kentucky businesses and organizations have set up financial aid programs to help Kentuckians with their college costs. Some are available statewide, while others are limited to several counties, one county or one school. KHEAA has gathered information on as many of these programs as we can. Statewide programs are listed first, then county-specific programs.
