Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
Outreach Report online
Outreach staff representing the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) counseled more than 155,000 Kentuckians about their higher education opportunities during the 2008-09 fiscal year, touching the lives of citizens in all 120 Kentucky counties.
In addition to the onsite visits, nearly 790,000 KHEAA college and career publications were distributed during the same time frame. Those publications include Getting In, a complete college admissions and financial aid guide for high school seniors. Copies were sent to public and private high schools in the state for distribution to all seniors.
All KHEAA publications and outreach services are free, with funds coming from the agency’s role as a guarantor of federal student loans and from a federal grant. No state general fund monies are used.
“Helping our fellow Kentuckians pursue higher education opportunities remains at the heart of everything we do,” said Edward J. Cunningham, KHEAA executive director and chief executive officer. “We look forward to serving the students of Kentucky for many years to come.”
KHEAA is the state agency that administers Kentucky’s student financial aid programs and helps students and parents plan and pay for college.
