Go Higher Grants
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 18, 2008) — Adult Kentuckians who have never taken college classes may be eligible to take advantage of a Go Higher Grant, administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).
Go Higher Grants are available to adults with financial need who are 24 years or older and enrolled in fewer than six credit hours at a participating Kentucky college or university. The maximum award amount is $1,000 and covers tuition plus a book allowance of $50 per credit hour.
To be considered for a grant, students must complete a Go Higher Grant application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Grant applications are available at www.kheaa.com or from adult education and learning centers. The FAFSA may be submitted online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Paper versions of the FAFSA are available by calling the U.S. Department of Education at 1-800-4-FED-AID. The priority deadline for the application is July 1, but applications will be accepted after that day.
